This graduate clinical unit builds on the sonographic skills, knowledge and attitudes developed during the Bachelor of Medical Sonography. You will perform diagnostic scans in areas appropriate for an ‘Entry Level Sonographer’ (as described by the Australian Sonography Association) to specified levels of competency. You will evaluate findings to formulate a differential diagnosis and initiate further investigation when appropriate. You will engage with your clinical supervisor in a critical appraisal of your professional behaviour.

All on-campus students are expected to attend scheduled classes – in some units, these classes are identified as a mandatory (pass/fail) component and attendance is compulsory. International students, on a student visa, must maintain a full time study load and meet both attendance and academic progress requirements in each study period (satisfactory attendance for International students is defined as maintaining at least an 80% attendance record).
Each 12-credit Postgraduate unit at CQUniversity requires an overall time commitment of an average of 25 hours of study per week, making a total of 300 hours for the unit.
