Our Core Purpose and Motivation
Our core purpose is to help those in the health care profession to improve patient care and outcomes. We do this by focussing on ultrasound education and training. The essential question that motivates us every day is:
“How can we better educate and train ultrasound users:
To acquire skills in optimising and documenting images;
To interpret images for clinical reasoning;
To integrate information for patient management.
Our Core Values
Our organisation values:
To reliably achieve high quality and standards.
To continually improve, innovate, learn and grow.
Care, Compassion and Respect
With staff, clients and the wider community.
To support, help, and collaborate.
To communicate effectively.
What is distinctive about our approach is that we work from your current skill level and progress you in a structured way. This is an individualised approach. Everyone learns at a different pace. Instead of providing multiple skills in one day, evidence-based education research and our own experience highlights the needs for students to focus on a core skill with regular practice. This moves you towards mastery.
Our educational philosophy focuses on:
Skill pathways you desire to learn;
Course options and modules that allow lots of practice on real patients with a low ratio of student to tutor;
Giving you a structured educational approach to close your skill gaps.
Returned to work and need more support?
Book the same module and we can extend your skills. Return as often as needed to develop mastery.
Want to learn a new skill? Choose a new course and a new pathway.
