Course details

Our aim is to educate podiatrists in the safe and competent use of diagnostic ultrasound imaging.  You will be trained in the safe acquisition of ultrasound images in the lower limb musculoskeletal systems. A team of experts from a variety of clinical backgrounds will help you understand these images together with the medical history to facilitate accurate decision making in patient management.

Joining the podiatry ultrasound course sees your learning split into two stages; a comprehensive two-day seminar and the option of attending two one-day masterclasses.

Stage One

This intense course features lectures, demonstrations, and practical workshops with simulators, models and real patients, covering ultrasound physics, equipment controls, quality assurance, and the ever important safety aspects.

See the full timetable in the accordions below.

Stage Two Masterclasses (optional)

Our fully equipped clinical skills centre boasts simulators (provided by scan trainer) together with state of the art Samsung medical systems (provided by MIS Healthcare) to give you the best start to your ultrasound training.  Expert lectures proceed hands on practical training in a ration not exceeding 2:1.
