How you learn

Teaching is delivered at Teesside University through academic blocks. The clinical route is delivered over five two-week blocks. The point of care route is delivered over five two-day blocks to suit busy clinical workloads.

Both routes are supported through e-learning. You will also develop your practical skills within your clinical placement. It is a fusion which allows you to become an autonomous safe ultrasound practitioner. Teaching methods used during your academic blocks include lectures, seminars, group work, and practical workshops. The state-of-the-art Regional Ultrasound Simulation Centre here on campus is fully incorporated into the teaching.

How you are assessed

You are assessed by written assignment, examinations and practical triggered assessment.
