It will be delivered over two semesters. Over the first nine weeks of the module, you will engage with directed study via the University’s e-learning environment, and the e-learning for health material prepared by the Royal College of Radiologists (RITI).
How you learn
To learn and develop the techniques necessary for the safe practice of H&N ultrasound imaging, you attend a mandatory two-day practical teaching workshop within the Regional Ultrasound Simulation Centre. This workshop timetabled for week two will be a mix of practical and case-based teaching. You consolidate your learning in your clinical placement and attend a second mandatory one-day teaching workshop timetabled for week ten to review technique and learn how to perform FNAC.
Throughout the duration of the module you must engage with a clinical placement where you can learn the necessary skills to perform and report high quality H&N ultrasound imaging and associated FNAC.
You have access to either face-to-face or webinar tutorials, and a mentor who can provide guidance and support.
