SIT offers stackable modular certification courses in Sonography with clinical focus to deepen and broaden the skills of healthcare professionals to apply scientific learning, specialist knowledge and advanced practical skills on the clinical applications of ultrasound specialisation. This is in response to Singapore’s efforts in building a future-ready healthcare workforce for an ageing population facing chronic diseases that need good and accurate diagnosis.
Arising from this, there is increased demand for postgraduate education and training with clinical focus in postgraduate sonography. These modular certification courses are available as independent modules, each carrying 6 credits which can be stacked towards qualifications in Postgraduate Certificate and Diploma in sonography.
These modules are stackable towards a Postgraduate Certificate in Sonography, Postgraduate Diploma in Sonography or can be taken individually as a single module as follows:
