Clinicians, midwives or others who wish to attain specialist scanning knowledge focus on the ultrasound proficiency required to develop their professional role.
- Course Purpose -
For health professionals, this programme is designed to award academic credit for a specialist student-negotiated area of ultrasound practice to meet individual professional needs.
- Course Format and Assessment -
This course involves a mix of classroom and work-based learning. The Negotiated Learning topic requires the demonstration of ultrasound scanning proficiency and this is assessed.
- Fundamentals of Ultrasound Practice (unless a qualified sonographer).
- Negotiated Learning with Clinical Proficiency.
The Negotiated Learning module can be taken as a stand-alone module for sonographers who are already qualified, to gain academic credits in a proficiency based topic that will advance their practice. Alternatively other professionals may study the Negotiated Learning with Clinical Proficiency and Fundamentals of Ultrasound modules to gain a CASE accredited PG Certificate.
