Ultrasound scanning has become an integral part of Obstetric and Gynaecology training. This PG Cert programme enabled me to focus and improve my scanning skills. This has helped me progress in my career and scan with confidence. I was able to understand the physics behind operating an ultrasound machine due to the fantastic lectures. The Programme Director was extremely supportive and motivated us throughout the period of the course. I would encourage any healthcare professional to enrol on this course as this is one of the best learning experiences I have had!
