Practical Training

TRAINING CENTRES

We have and continue to establish education collaborations and partnerships with like-minded institutions that share our passion for education. Some are in Cardiff while others are far afield, such as Profema, the Fetal Medicine Centre in the Czech Republic. We endeavour to support our students’ acquisition of practical skills closer to their work or home or we can identify international experts in the field. Some are free while others incur a fee for attendance.

ADVANCED MEDICAL SIMULATION ONLINE

At our head office in Cardiff we have state of the art abdominal and transvaginal simulator “ScanTrainer”. You will have access to its full content including the modules you have enrolled on and the vast image and clinical cases library, which has some rare pathologies that you may not encounter in routine clinical practice easily. Your early stage training will be supervised and you will benefit, when needed, from direct access to course faculty and feedback on submitted assignments. There is a booking system for training sessions. With advanced planning, we may block 2 or 3 days at a time for students coming from distant locations or international students spending a short period of time e.g. 6-8 weeks in the UK. These sessions may be combined with hands-on training and/or observation sessions at our local training centres.
