We understand that deciding where and what to study is a very important decision for you. We’ll make all reasonable efforts to provide you with the courses, services and facilities as described on our website. However, if we need to make material changes, for example due to significant disruption, or in response to COVID-19, we’ll let our applicants and students know as soon as possible.
100% coursework mark. This is a reflective portfolio evidencing application of ultrasound to work-based practice, professional issues, clinical reasoning, a scanning logbook and case study. The Reflective portfolio (excluding the scanning log book) is 3000 words.
Scanning logbook should contain:
- record of five scans undertaken during the taught sessions
- record of 20 scans undertaken during the independent study/supervised practice time
- you do not need a work-based supervisor to assess your scanning but colleague support is valuable when available.
