Our MSc in Medical Ultrasound provides clinicians and medical scientists with intensive training in both the theoretical basis of medical ultrasound and the required scanning and diagnostic skills.
The course 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.
As an academic degree, it does not provide automatic qualification to practise as a sonographer, and national examinations may be required to achieve this.
Nevertheless, the programme follows the core British Society of Echocardiography syllabus and prepares any future candidate for the successful completion of the national examinations.
Each is speciality is run independently in its respective department. You will have exposure to patients, and get a substantial amount of hands-on experience through placement with Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust.
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.
Please note that echocardiography students will receive 'MSc Medical Ultrasound (Echocardiography)' as their award upon successful completion of the course, whereas vascular ultrasound students graduate with 'MSc Medical Ultrasound'.
