The Consortium for the Accreditation of Sonographic Education (CASE) recommends a postgraduate certificate (PgCert)in medical ultrasound to be the minimum qualification required to practise ultrasound in the UK. This CASE-accredited course enables healthcare professionals from varying clinical backgrounds to become safe, competent ultrasound practitioners. The course: develops you academically to postgraduate level; enables you to become an autonomous practitioner with the skills to undertake high quality medical ultrasound examination competently and safely in a defined area of ultrasound practice, placing the person at the centre of care; enhances your critical skills to enable you to promote high quality evidence and care; promotes an ethos of caring, compassion, professionalism, excellence and lifelong learning; and enables you to function as a valued member of the multi-disciplinary healthcare team.
Please note that due to current anticipated changes to NHS education and HE funding, information relating to funding will be updated on Teesside University website.
