  • Graduate Certificate in Medical Ultrasound (24 credit points)

The Graduate Certificate introduces the student to the introductory concepts of ultrasound and then enables a focus in a particular branch of clinical ultrasound. A Graduate Diploma is required to obtain accreditation with the Australian Sonographer Accreditation Registry (ASAR) which will enable the successful graduate to practise as a qualified sonographer. The Masters extension of the program enables development of advanced practice and research skills. The course resources are provided mainly on-line. The material is structured to guide the student through the material on a weekly schedule with exercises that ensure the course retains a clinical focus.  This program is suited to applicants that have a clinical training position.
