I’m looking to apply to a postgrad cert for medical ultrasound. I’m graduating with a Bsc in Biomed. All the accredited uni’s require written confirmation of clinical placements, was just wondering how I go about getting these placements?

Are they only available as trainee sonographer placements? Or do I personally email/call up every hospital?

only trainee sonographer placements, you get them through the hospital generally and there may be competition.

I'm in the same situation, been offered a place on the condition of finding a placement myself and trust it's not easy. Has anyone had any luck? If so please share your experience that may be helpful to others,

Most people who do it are already radiographers and get it through their employer at their work base. Not sure how it works as an independent candidate. Maybe try emailing hospital ultrasound departments and see what they say, could present a challenge now with covid but it’s just a suggestion

It’s assigned by hospitals usually reserved for radiographer within the department. They select individuals through interviews.

I got a response from 2 places. 1 was a private clinic and the other was a hospital that was going to interview me. I didn't go for either because I was told I would have to pay for the placements on top of the university fees.

Let me get this straight, you will be helping the hospital as a trainee sonographer and they want you to pay for your help?

Yes, you would be working under the supervisors/lead tutors. These were clinical placements referred to me by the university..
