Who is it for?
This course is suitable for a range of health care professionals who have experience in radiography, nursing, midwifery or other related professions.
The course enables students to achieve the academic qualifications and clinical skills needed to pursue a career in ultrasound or to develop current skills further. Students need a clinical placement in a recognised department, to engage in a wide range of ultrasound examinations for the duration of the course.
City's Medical Ultrasound course offers flexible study options for healthcare professionals undertaking obstetrics, gynaecology and / or abdominal ultrasound training and for those wishing to develop their skills further using work based learning options.
Our expert staff provide a supportive environment, encouraging students to develop their academic abilities and clinical skills in preparation for working as a sonographer. Students learn a range of subjects to enable them to explore the underpinning knowledge of safe, effective and evidence-based ultrasound practice, with which to help them develop clinical skills in their own department. Teaching is also supported by specialist guest speakers who provide current, relevant course material.
Students can achieve competency to practice if they successfully complete both academic and clinical components of the programme to PgC level or above.
