In 2016 the University of Cumbria introduced the UK’s first dedicated Direct Entry Postgraduate Ultrasound MSc and following a careful selection process accepted 5 students on to the programme with the support of 5 clinical ultrasound departments who agreed to be placement hospitals. This report investigates findings arising from interviews with the clinical leads of these placement hospitals as well as the first cohort of students evaluating their experiences and opinions of the programme throughout the two-year registration period.
