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.
