This week long highly specialised practical tuition program has been specifically designed for new entrant student sonographers to overcome those difficult days of learning the basic concepts of scanning the upper abdomen. The profession of Sonography is one that requires a practitioner to exercise a wide degree of decisional latitude during the working day. This necessitates a high degree of expert tuition, not only in the theoretical components of the required knowledge base, but also, and most importantly, in the practical aspects of training. Companies providing such training will be well aware of the expenses involved in employing highly paid allied health professionals who do not contribute to the income stream for the first months of their employment and in having senior staff slow down their throughput during the initial stages of student training. The stresses imposed on senior staff during the initial weeks of any “in-house” training program are extremely high and can contribute to low morale and high staff turnover. It is our contention that intensive practical tuition conducted outside the workplace by professionals experienced in this area, will result in students whose clinical competence will be of a uniformly high standard in a shorter time frame.
“The tutors at the AIU are the best teachers I have ever seen, my student arrived there knowing nothing about scanning and returned with useful skills and the basis of good scanning habits!”
“In my opinion, the AIU FastTrack program is the best training money can buy.”
NB: This program is also available in a tailored format, for corporate clients such as Radiology Practices, Diagnostic Imaging Companies and Health Authorities.
