During this module you will learn and develop the underpinning academic knowledge and clinical skills needed to undertake a range of gynaecological ultrasound examinations.
You will develop your knowledge, understanding and ability to perform, interpret and report on diagnostic gynaecological ultrasound examinations in a competent and professional manner and be able to respond to changes in working practice and apply new techniques after critically evaluating them. You will develop the skills to be able to critically review management options for a range of common pathologies.
