University of East London Ultrasound

PGCert Musculoskeletal Ultrasonography

This fully accredited PG Certificate course allows established healthcare clinicians working in the field of musculoskeletal and sports medicine to combine learning in the workplace with a recognised postgraduate qualification.

Our first intake included consultants from A&E departments and a range of clinicians from fields such as physiotherapy, sonography and podiatry.

The course is also aimed at healthcare professionals within the fields of orthopaedics, osteopathy, rheumatology, and sports medicine.

In the UK, there is a national shortage of sonographers, hence the need to involve other health professionals in this area of musculoskeletal ultrasound training.

The use of ultrasound is becoming an increasingly popular and cost effective adjunct to MRI scans.

The course is sponsored by BK Medical, who provide the relevant diagnostic equipment.
