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.
