Mentorship in MSK Ultrasound Imaging
We have partnered with the University College of Osteopathy (UCO) in London, formally the British School of Osteopathy (BSO), to develop this unique mentorship to provide a learning pathway in MSK Ultrasound Imaging. The programme is structured to work as a stand-alone learning pathway or to complement an existing pathway such as the SMUG post graduate certificate in MSKUS.
Book early to avoid disappointment. Places are strictly limited to 12 delegates each cohort to ensure close expert supervision and scanning time.
If you would like to discuss this further, please email email@example.com
The course is designed for delegates who have attended a minimum two-day introduction to MSK ultrasound imaging course and who have access to an MSK ultrasound scanner. The course takes place at the Ultrasound Teaching Clinic at the University College of Osteopathy (UCO) clinic. This provides the delegates an opportunity to scan ion real patients under the close supervision of the SMUG expert faculty.
Delegates must have attended a SMUG 2-day introduction course (or an equivalent introduction to MSK US imaging course) and have access to an MSK Ultrasound Imaging scanner for practise between supervision days.
Delegates must have access to an MSK ultrasound machine and be able to carry out regular diagnostic MSK ultrasound scans in their workplace during the course.
Mentorship Programme Schedule
Delegates must attend each Supervision Day, (one day each month for 6 months, with an additional day in month 6 to sit the practical exam). Each Supervision Day focuses on a specific joint (see Dates Tab) and delegates scan real patients with pathology, at the Ultrasound Teaching Clinic. At the end of the course (month 6) there is a practical exam and the opportunity to review your logbook.
The tutors have extensive experience in helping clinicians to develop the skills and knowledge required to implement MSK ultrasound into their clinical practice.
Who should attend?
This programme attracts MSK Radiologists, GPs with a special interest in MSK/Sports Medicine, Surgeons, Radiologists, Sports Medicine Consultants, Rheumatologists, Physiotherapists, Radiographers, Podiatrists, Sonographers and Osteopaths.
Here are a few reasons why previous delegates have enrolled on our Mentorship Programme:
- To contribute towards the supervised and unsupervised scans
- required to complete a PG Certificate or Diploma in MSK Ultrasound.
- Radiologists enrolled to help them achieve the Level 1 Royal College of Radiologists (RCR) Standards
- Sports Doctors and GPwSI registered to help prepare for the Faculty of Sports & Exercise Medicine (FSEM) Clinical Competency Exam also known as The Ultrasound Direct Observation of Procedural Skills (DOPS) Clinical Assessment
- To provide a dedicated learning pathway in MSK Ultrasound Imaging
