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
