Programme Info

Sonographer is a person that holds a qualified ultrasound qualification such as the Postgraduate Diploma of Medical Ultrasonography (Asia)- PgDMU (Asia). The PgDMU (Asia) is an internationally recognized qualification awarded by the Australasian Society for Ultrasound in Medicine (ASUM), Australia and New Zealand. In Malaysia, the PgDMU (Asia) is fully accredited by the Malaysian Qualification Agency (MQA).

Clinical exposure to real-life patients begins at the start of the programme. Students will have frequent patient contact at Vision Diagnostic Centre as well as affiliated medical centres throughout Malaysia. The high level of practical exposure provided by the programme ensures that graduates have high standards of clinical training.

Throughout the programme, students will be trained to obtain, review and integrate patient history. The practical training and clinical sessions will provide them with the opportunity to learn skills and procedures which are invaluable in obtaining high quality diagnostic ultrasound images. Students will be taught to exercise discretion and judgment as well as record data for interpretation. Last but not least, they will be trained in communication skills in order to deal with different kinds of patients in a professional and ethical manner.
