Medical Imaging (Ultrasound)
1st or 2nd Class Honours degree. Students with other qualifications may be admitted to the course via Accreditation of Prior Learning (APL) procedures. You will need to have at least 12 month's equivalent full-time post registration clinical experience, and you will need support from a clinical ultrasound department and access to a clinical placement in such a department for the duration of the course. Applicants should be eligible for registration by their respective UK regulatory body e.g. HCPC, GMC, UKCC, SVT. You will also need to provide one reference in support of your application. You will be required to pass an element of pre-course assessment. This will be carried out to ensure that you show an aptitude for ultrasonography. You will need to undertake a preliminary practical assessment to demonstrate the relevant psychomotor skills such as hand-eye co-ordination, pattern recognition and spatial awareness. The assessment will be of an informal nature, carried out by experienced practitioners in your clinical placement, who will then provide a written reference of your suitability.
