The aim of the Negotiated Specialist Ultrasound Practice (1) - Level M module is to provide you with the knowledge base to become a proficient practitioner in your chosen field of medical ultrasound.

The key advantage with this module is in the fact that it provides you with the opportunity to negotiate your own work-based ultrasound module to accommodate your individual professional and departmental needs.

You will negotiate the speciality to be studied with the module leader and your work-based manager.



The specific content of the module will be negotiated with a member of the academic staff of the faculty and will vary as a function of the identified area of practice.

Learning and Teaching

A variety of approaches will be used which will include; key lectures, work-based; action and problem-centred learning; seminars and student presentations.
