Course overview

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.

The module will facilitate the extended role of the practitioner by encouraging the skills of reflection and analysis so that you can critically appraise current practice, propose and develop improvements in practice and so improve the service to the patient and the effectiveness of the ultrasound department.

Module Dates:

Attendance is required at student induction on 18 September 2018.

Dates for September lectures to be confirmed.
