Basic USS Training

Transabdominal ultrasound simulators are spread throughout Yorkshire and the Humber region for all trainees to use. These simulators provide both basic and more advanced modules which will enable the basic principles of scanning to be learnt.

A structured training programme has been created to help all trainees learn, practice and improve basic ultrasound skills by using the simulators. This consists of:

•           a practical component

•           a theoretical component – STRATOG

Trainees not at centres with an ultrasound simulator can access these by booking with the centre in advance. Contact details and further information of the tasks to practice specific to each year of training are outlined in the Basic Ultrasound Training Programme.
