The MSc in Medical Ultrasound programme is both academic and vocational in nature and is the only MSc of this type to offer a clinical attachment as part of the course.

The MSc aims to train students to use research and development skills to develop the field of medical ultrasound. Students can choose one of two sub specialities:

Echocardiography
Vascular ultrasound

Each is run independently in its respective department. Students have ample exposure to patients and get a lot of hands-on experience.

The research project forms a major part of the programme and students will be expected to plan and carry out a major piece of independent research under the guidance of their supervisor.

Key benefits

The course is accredited by the Consortium for the Accreditation of Sonographic Education (CASE).

Course detail

The course is designed to produce clinically competent advanced practitioners, who will be able to meet the needs of the service in a changing health care environment.

The course was planned in full consultation with a wide range of relevant professionals from the South West region, who are experts in the field of diagnostic ultrasound or associated clinical specialisms. These experts are instrumental in the delivery of the course, along with experienced educationalists from within the University.

Structure

Postgraduate Certificate (Year 1)
• Ultrasound Technology (compulsory) (30 Level M credits)
• Plus one 30 credit clinical module or two 15 credit modules

Postgraduate Diploma (Year 2)
In addition to the above:
• Two 30 credit clinical modules or one 30 credit plus two 15 credit modules

MSc Medical Ultrasound (Year 3)
In addition to the above:
• Health and Social Care Research: Methods and Methodologies (compulsory) (15 level M credits)
• Dissertation (45 or 60 level M credit modules)

CPD

This course can also be studied on a modular basis as professional development, over whatever time period you choose. You may wish to build credits up to one of the awards above, or complete the module(s) as standalone study.

Format

The course aims to provide you with:
• the knowledge and skills to practise in a safe and competent manner
• the educational and research base to critically evaluate and inform ultrasound practice
• the opportunity for interprofessional collaboration and shared learning
• an understanding of the contribution of ultrasound to the overall management of the patient
• a recognised qualification in ultrasound
• the skills to engage in research, evaluation and systematic reviews of practice
• an appreciation of the importance of life-long learning activities

Placements

The obstetric ultrasound, general medical ultrasound and negotiated specialist modules will require an appropriate work placement, and a designated clinical appraiser. The programme team are developing a work-based learning approach for some modules. A wide range of assessments will be utilised, to include the assessment of clinical competence.

Assessment

Assessment will involve a variety of methods including coursework, presentations, seminars, written and practical examinations.

Careers / Further study

Once you have completed this course you will have the knowledge and skills to practice in a safe and competent manner, a recognised qualification in ultrasound, the educational and research base to critically evaluate and inform ultrasound practice, the opportunity for inter-professional collaboration and shared learning, and an understanding of the contribution of ultrasound to the overall management of the patient.

There has never been a more exciting time to undertake an MSc in Clinical Exercise Physiology. Exercise now represents one of the world’s major businesses and scientists have an increasingly prominent role in working with healthy and clinical populations to maintain healthy lifestyles and reduce disease.

This Masters programme is ideal if you want to go on to specialise in exercise physiology in a clinical setting or work at doctoral level in academia.

The programme provides a detailed knowledge of physiology applied to clinical contexts, but is also designed to extend your knowledge beyond ‘classical’ exercise physiology studies and into novel techniques and theories underpinning exercise physiology and health.

The MSc programme provides extensive practical experience in key physiology laboratory tests such as ECG and cardiopulmonary testing. It also gives a good understanding into modern and novel ultrasound assessments of cardiovascular function. Academic development is provided in fundamental scientific techniques including research methods, statistical analysis and scientific communication.

Please see guidance below on core and option modules for further information on what you will study.
Level 7
Pathophysiology of cardiovascular disease
Technical training for exercise physiology
Advanced exercise physiology and exercise prescription
Promotion, adherence and compliance
Clinical placement and thesis
Research methods

Further guidance on modules

The information listed in the section entitled ‘What you will study’ is an overview of the academic content of the programme that will take the form of either core or option modules. Modules are designated as core or option in accordance with professional body requirements and internal Academic Framework review, so may be subject to change.
