Course Summary


Ultrasound guided injection therapy is a rapidly developing skill that is becoming the standard for performing peripheral musculoskeletal injection techniques. There are very few training opportunities to develop these skills and achieve a competency certificate. Brunel are pleased to offer this module in partnership with The Ultrasound Site.

Whether working within the NHS, private practice or elite sports, if you'd like to add the skills of ultrasound guided injection therapy to your already established musculoskeletal assessment and treatment skills, the ultrasound guided injection therapy module is for you. You'll be taught by full-time clinicians working in the NHS and private sectors, in both point of care and radiology roles with a vast experience of performing these peripheral musculoskeletal techniques to a range of intra-articular and peri-articular structures over many years. This course does not cover nerve blocks or spinal procedures.

You will learn the core skill of performing common peripheral musculoskeletal ultrasound guided injection techniques, including the skills to visualise the needle and guide it accurately towards a specific structure.

Careers and your future

On successful completion of this course, you'll be able to demonstrate a competency based award in musculoskeletal ultrasound guided injection techniques to employers. This will enable you to work autonomously and perform these techniques.
