    • 1st trimester
    • Renal
    • Gallbladder
  • Use a systematic approach to conduct ultrasound assessment of
    • DVT
    • Acute scrotum
    • Early pregnancy assessment of pain and bleeding and evaluation of ectopic pregnancy
    • Renal calculi and hydronephrosis

A great training course is only the beginning of your ultrasound learning journey

To help you master ultrasound and lasting change from training we engage you from the outset

Before your course:
There are pre course activities & access to preparatory learning resources to maximise your in-class experience

During your course:

  • Short, sharp information sessions to provide foundational knowledge and clinical context
  • Lots of hands-on practical sessions with real people to scan (including for TV and obstetric scans). Our standardised patients models vary in age, size, shape and mobility to make the transition to clinical reality easier.
  • Case studies led by practising clinicians to demonstrate clinical utility
  • A variety of different machines to learn on
  • At the conclusion of your course we’ll lead you to create a skills development action plan, creating a pathway that you can use to apply your newly acquired skills, promote clinical integration and ultimately reach your final objective – ultrasound competency

After your course:
The learning continues

  • We encourage self-directed learning in the workplace with structured active learning plans
  • A great selection of free access online medical ultrasound (FoamUS) learning resources
  • You can subscribe to the weekly wrap – a weekly curation of ultrasound related hot tips and journal articles
  • Be a part of our community of clever – Join our peer support network with our monthly “Coaching Corner” sessions. Send in your questions, join the live online meeting and have your questions answered.
