Gareth Bolton

Programme Leader for the MSc Medical Imaging (Ultrasound) at University of Cumbria

Before moving into higher education, in 2010, I was a Senior Radiographer/Sonographer for over ten years (specialising in general medical, vascular, obstetric and gynaecological ultrasound practice).
I am currently Programme Leader for the MSc Medical Imaging (Ultrasound) at University of Cumbria.

I regularly undertake clinical practice in ultrasound at my local NHS trust and remain a HCPC registered diagnostic radiographer. I am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (HEA). I am external examiner for the MSc Medical Ultrasound at another UK HEI.
My research interest is Work-related Musculoskeletal Disorder (WRMSD) in ultrasound practice in the UK, and I am currently working towards my PhD, studying at Lancaster University.

I have been an accreditor for CASE (Consortium for the Accreditation of Sonographic Education) for several years now and

I was elected onto British Medical Ultrasound Society (BMUS) council (January 2018) for a 3 yr term.

 I am now delighted to be representing BMUS on CASE committee.
