Here are just a few of the many testimonials and letters that we have received from our past students:
“To the amazing AIU team:
The AIU provided me with a personalised learning opportunity. I found the tailor-made courses to be incredibly helpful for both students and qualified sonographers working in remote locations. I have attended many courses at the AIU since I started working as a trainee sonographer in an outback hospital in the Northern Territory. I thoroughly enjoyed the courses with a good balance of lecture seminars and hands-on training. From my experience, practical lessons were always fun and exciting. The teachers were great with excellent practical and theoretical knowledge.
I am very grateful for the AIU’s support during my studies (Grad. Dip in Medical Sonography, University SA). I am passionate about providing sonography services in remote areas and my aim is to work towards being as multi-skilled as I can in order to provide a good service to our community. From early on in my career, I have seen the potential for sonography to make a profound difference to the health and well-being of remote and rural communities. The skilled diagnostic medical sonographers play a vital role in ensuring a proper diagnosis. One of the biggest advantages of ultrasound is that it takes less time to make a diagnosis and it decreases costs by allowing for more targeted management and therapy earlier on. Currently I am studying echocardiography as many of our patients have limited access to cardiology services. Our nearest cardiology department is 320km away, so having a general sonographer credentialed in this speciality will help to expand the scope of cardiac services to the hospital and region. I am looking forward to attending my next course at the AIU to further improve my skills in echocardiography. I am very thankful to the entire AIU team for all of their help.”
