Course Feedback :

“I really liked how the speaker utilised real life videos of her scanning a live animal to illustrate where to put your probe when scanning for different organ systems. This was a really helpful tool to help with your visualisation of where to place the probe, how much pressure to use and what direction to angle it towards.

“Given me a good basic knowledge and confidence to start doing ultrasound

“The content of the Mini Series has Increased confidence finding structures and less obvious abnormalities
