This course is designed to provide the practitioner with essential cognitive skills required for use of ultrasound imaging in MSK practice.
A home-based programme of practical instruction is facilitated by provision of an ultrasound scanner to each student. The series of remotely delivered interactive video conference sessions with accompanying practice exercises has been specficially designed to build up core skills in a progressive manner through repetition. To be conducted over a period of four weeks.
The course commences with delivery of an Orca Pod to each student to be used over the duration of the course. The Pod incorporates all necessary elements to enable the progressive acquisition of required skills through home-based practice. The teaching programme is delivered by a combination of interactive lectures and practice exercises staged over the four week period, and will equip practitioners with the essential cognitive skills necessary to begin in incorporating ultrasound imaging into their daily clinical practice.
