      Clinical ultrasound has made a dramatic impact on patient management in peri-operative, critical care, emergency medicine, surgery and internal medicine environments.

      An expanding range of clinicians are now using clinical ultrasound, including those in primary care, remote and rural medicine, sports medicine, prehospital/paramedicine, nursing, midwifery, physiotherapy, and other branches of allied health.

      Developed by the renowned Ultrasound Education Group (UEG), the University of Melbourne’s clinical ultrasound courses are tailored to the needs of medical professionals looking to gain the expertise to perform and interpret complex medical ultrasound cases within their clinical practice.

      Delivered 100% online, the Graduate Certificate will develop your understanding of how to generate ultrasound images and transthoracic echocardiography, and provide an introduction to transesophageal echocardiography.
