University of the West of England, Bristol
Delivery Method: Face-to-face

This course is offered at Masters level and is delivered at our Glenside Campus.

Course content:

Course content will be defined following discussions between yourself, the course leader and your manager and will result in a learning contract being drawn up. You will be allocated to an action learning set, which will consist of a group practitioners - each involved in a separate work-based learning activity. You will maintain regular contact with each other to discuss the problems you face within your respective sub-specialities.

Your negotiated learning contract will specify exactly how the course learning outcomes will be achieved. Clinical assessment areas will also be defined as a result of discussions and subject specific competencies must be demonstrated in all areas.

Potential areas for study will be negotiated and could include a sub-speciality of areas such as:

  • Obstetric ultrasound:
    • First-trimester anomaly scanning
    • Fetal echocardiography.
  • Gynaecological ultrasound:
    • Fertility and sub-fertility scanning
    • Screening for ovarian cancer.
  • General medical ultrasound:
    • Paediatric
    • Musculo-skeletal
    • Superficial parts e.g. breast ultrasound.
  • Vascular ultrasound:
    • Upper limb assessment.


Lectures will be provided by the course team and external visiting clinical specialists. Classroom sessions will also include hands-on scanning supervised sessions and review of cases. Discussion groups will be organised covering a range of relevant topics.

Funding may be available to support your learning. Please contact your Trust Education Lead. If you work in the Private, Independent and Voluntary Sector, please contact your employer who will advise you.
