Ultrasound is an essential tool in medical diagnosis. In recent years demand has grown beyond all expectations. This has resulted in expansion of the modality both in imaging departments and point of care clinical settings.
To meet this demand we have created our MSc Ultrasound to offer you the opportunity to train in general or very focused ultrasound applications. You'll be taught in our modern Clinical Skills Suite by some of the area's leading experts in this field and using state of the art simulation systems.
The course is modular, offering both full-time and part-time enrolment options to help you fit your professional development into your lifestyle. Our part-time pathway is flexible in its design, delivery and assessment to help you meet the demands of work and family commitments. A broad range of negotiated modules allow you to put together a programme of study that meets your individual learning needs, supporting your individual career aspirations.
We welcome applicants from a diverse range of graduate backgrounds. It's the perfect opportunity for graduates with an interest in ultrasound to train in a field which is in high demand.
