As a Medical Ultrasound (Sonography) student at the School of Medicine, you will have access to dedicated teaching facilities and the necessary resources to support and enhance your learning experience.
Dedicated Simulation Suite
At Leeds we believe technology can significantly enhance your teaching and learning experience. Our range of ultrasound phantoms will allow you to benefit from the collaboration and group discussions essential for team-based learning. You will also be able to access age simulation suits (GERT) so that you can experience age-related issues many of your patients routinely face. These include mobility, hearing and vision difficulties. Substantial investment continues to extend and enhance our facilities in line with technological advances in the area.
The School of Medicine has its own dedicated Medical Ultrasound simulation suite on campus, equipped with six cutting-edge ultrasound simulation systems (Bodyworks Eve), a Scan Trainer (transabdominal and transvaginal scanning) and a range of ultrasound imaging phantoms.
We also have a clinical skills room based in Seacroft Hospital with a state-of-the-art Acuson Sequoia ultrasound machine and access to PACS reporting station. This enables our students to gain access to real patients within a clinical environment under the supervision of a member of the lecturing team.
Our other facilities
In addition to our specialist facilities, you will have access to the recently refurbished School of Medicine's teaching and clinical practice facilities, including the Medical Teaching Centre (MTC) - a state-of-the-art technology hub for classroom-based teaching and learning within the School. You will also use clinical skills training equipment in a safe environment to practice skills before applying them in a real-world scenario.
The Health Sciences Library, also situated in the School of Medicine, will also be available to you as well as the University's many other libraries and study spaces.
