Ultrasound is regarded as a complementary imaging procedure undertaken in the majority of modern. Diagnostic Imaging or X-ray departments. Sonographers scan patients/clients with a variety of diseases and conditions and, under written protocols, report on the images produced.

Entry Requirements:
You will normally be expected to hold either a first degree or an equivalent professional qualification and have had a minimum of two years experience as a qualified practitioner. The majority of applicants will be radiographers, midwives, doctors and nurses. However we will consider applicants with health based or science degrees providing that they are able to obtain a clinical placement. You must ensure that you have a satisfactory clinical placement where you can obtain a minimum of 250 hours of supervised ‘hands on’ clinical ultrasound experience - this is equivalent to 1 ½ days per week over a nine month period.

Why should I study this course?
Our postgraduate awards have received professional accreditation from CASE – the Consortium for Accreditation of Sonographic Education and are taught within the region’s foremost centre for radiography education, with a well-established and successful history. The course will further enhance your skills professionally, personally and practically.

Course structure:
This is a part-time day and evening course which has academic and clinical placement components. The academic components are delivered at the University on a Wednesday afternoon and evening. The clinical component takes place in practice and should cover a minimum of one day per week.

How will I be taught?
We place a real emphasis on student-centred learning, so the majority of study is by seminar and discussion groups where you and your fellow students will learn a great deal by sharing experiences. There will be a substantial amount of material that will be taught online or through video lectures.

Placements, Study Visits Available:
You are expected to organise your own clinical placement where you can obtain a minimum of 250 hours of supervised ‘hands on’ clinical ultrasound experience. This is equivalent to 1 ½ days per week over a nine month period.

Assessment:
You will be assessed via written assignments, presentations, examinations and clinical assessments. Academic modules are assessed by either a 3,000 word assignment or a 2,000 word assignment and a one hour unseen written examination. Clinical modules are assessed by clinical assessment (observed performance of ultrasound scans) in their own departments and OSCEs (Objective Structured Clinical Examinations) undertaken at the University. You also have to keep a log book and diary of clinical practice.

Employability:
Health care professionals with a Medical Ultrasound degree are in great demand to work as sonographers and you will also be able to extend the scope of your current practice by incorporating expertise in sonography.

There is a severe shortage of sonographers. Sonography is an expanding field, with a steady increase in examinations requested year by year therefore you should have no difficulty in finding work as a qualified sonographer.
