CSU's Master of Medical Ultrasound produces postgraduates with the skills and knowledge needed to undertake medical ultrasound at a high standard standard, while supporting them to develop academic skills necessary for ongoing professional development.
CSU is a major provider of medical imaging practitioners in Australia, preparing radiographers and nuclear medicine technologists through the School of Biomedical Sciences.
Students have the opportunity to develop their academic skills to enable them to undertake a lifetime of professional development in the field and become familiar with the research methods available in the area of medical ultrasound.
The Master degree comprises the Graduate Diploma subjects and an additional year of part-time study involving a dissertation relating to medical ultrasound.
Students are eligible to become an Accredited Medical Sonographer (AMS) through the Australasian Sonographer Accreditation Registry (ASAR) at the completion of the eight Graduate Diploma subjects. The Master degree has also been accredited by the ASAR.
Credit will be given to students who have relevant postgraduate equivalent qualifications. This is usually assessed on an individual basis.
CSU is the preferred university for graduates of the Australian School of Medical Imaging (ASMI) to complete their sonography studies.
ASMI students who have successfully completed the Intensive Sonography Introductory Program (ISIP) will gain the equivalent credit of two 8 point subjects.
Graduates of ASMI's Graduate Program of Medical Ultrasound (GPMU) will gain the equivalent credit of five 8 point subjects.
Bridging and enabling programs are available through CSU to assist with the assumed knowledge for the course. For more information contact info.csu on 1800 334 733 or make an online enquiry
There is a compulsory five-day residential school held on campus, usually during April of each year. Attendance at the residential school occurs during enrolment in PHY541 Ultrasound Physics and Instrumentation. In addition, there is an optional two-day introductory residential school held in Wagga Wagga in February.
For each 8 point subject at CSU, students should normally expect to spend between 140-160 hours engaged in the specified learning and assessment activities (such as attending lectures or residential schools, assigned readings, tutorial assistance, individual or group research/study, forum activity, workplace learning, assignments or examinations). The student workload for some subjects may vary from these norms as a result of approved course design.
Students will be assessed on the basis of completed assignments, examinations, workplace learning, or other methods as outlined in specific subject outlines.
Where applicable, students are responsible for travel and accommodation costs involved in workplace learning experiences, or attending residential schools (distance education students).
