Expert MSK sonography tutors, working full-time in POCUS and Radiology roles.


High quality, evidence based and upto date teaching content.


Maximum 3 delegates per scanner for practicals


Each course has a selection of high-specification ultrasound machines so you can experience a variety of manufacturers and models.


Our tutors are committee members of several national ultrasound committees


High tutor to student ratio, giving you lots of feedback on your skills.


Our CPD courses provide practical knowledge but do not award a certificate of competency (excluding the Brunel PG Cert program). You must enquire with your relevant professional body to confirm if the skills covered within our courses are considered within the scope of your professional practice, and whether your professional insurance will cover you to use them in your practice. Ultrasound regulation is a complex issue. Any skills covered by the course should be maintained and developed through ongoing mentorship, peer support, and training. Please get in touch if you have questions here .

Our practical courses are supported by

Extra online lectures and tutorial videos 24/7 alongside our musculoskeletal ultrasound and guided injection training courses


Online lectures 24/7

All course delegates who attend our musculoskeletal ultrasound training courses will get unlimited access to diagnostic ultrasound or ultrasound guided injection related online lectures by our course tutors. These provide a more in-depth appreciation of the topics and are an excellent source of learning before and after our courses. We are constantly adding to this selection, so keep your eyes peeled!

  • ULTRASOUND GUIDED COURSES –  Needle visualisation, Aseptic technique, Informed consent, Ultrasound guided injections and the evidence base, Why we use cadaveric specimens for our guided injection training.


  • MSK ULTRASOUND COURSES –  An introduction to the Physics of MSK ultrasound, An introduction to probe skills and orientation to the image, Ultrasound system settings and knobology, An introduction to recognising pathology on musculoskeletal ultrasound, An introduction to quality assurance and professional issues of MSK ultrasound.

Gain access to our private MSK ultrasound Facebook community

By attending our musculoskeletal ultrasound training courses you will gain access to your tutors in our private, Facebook community of MSK Ultrasound practice with specific groups for upper and lower limb MSK Ultrasound pathology, discussing anonymised cases and articles of interest. We also have groups for upper and lower limb guided injection techniques, discuss your techniques  – what went well, what could be improved and what the evidence is. Lastly, but importantly we have established groups on training and governance.


We run a selection of musculoskeletal ultrasound training courses, click here to find out more.


We run a number of different level ultrasound guided injection courses


Find out more about this CASE accredited PG Cert musculoskeletal ultrasound program that we run in partnership with Brunel University London.


We have created loads of MSK ultrasound related educational material to help you including cases, videos and images and  protocols for different regions.


We have recorded a series of informal MSK ultrasound discussions during the Covid-19 pandemic


We have written a series of MSK ultrasound blog articles

How did our courses develop?

Best to hear directly from the course founders
Dave Baker, Rob Mast and Stu Wildman


” We just had a passion for the topic, to learn more and also to educate is that simple. All three of us share this passion, which is unique and it drives all of our projects forward – constantly striving to improve the education we offer!  We had a vision to run a number of clinically focussed, musculoskeletal ultrasound courses. The Ultrasound Site website assisted us and continues to provide a way for us to express this enthusiasm and commitment to educating other professionals.”

Taught so far!

The two day introduction to MSK ultrasound is a very well planned and delivered course. Perfect blend of theory and small group practical sessions. The resources and quality of teaching are excellent. Stuart, Rob and Dave have huge amounts of experience, both as teachers and practitioners, and their enthusiasm and passion for the subject is evident. We also had the added bonus of being able to tap into Fredy’s amazing knowledge of anatomy.

The course supplies a really good grounding of knowledge in a way that can be understood what ever background profession you have. Each joint is covered firstly with anatomy and ultrasound appearance of both normal and abnormal. This is followed by a practical demonstration of scanning technique. Then the opportunity to reinforce the learning by scanning in small groups. This is all presented in a way that encourages questioning and interaction. I particularly appreciated all the practical hints and tips offered throughout the two days. I would recommend this course to anyone interested in extending their practice to include MSK ultrasound.

The Introductory MSK Ultrasound course was the perfect introduction to a topic that can appear daunting at first.  The days are well structured with an appropriate mix of technique, anatomy, governance guidance and the physics behind the modality. Three screens are set up allowing the lecture slides, camera for probe positioning and a mirror of the ultrasound image to be viewed simultaneously.

Each section was introduced with a review of anatomy by Freddy, a Physio and anatomist, which was incredibly engaging and immediately applicable to Stuart and Rob’s demonstration of the ultrasound technique for that area. Stuart and Rob’s clinical pearls from their experience paired with their approachability made them excellent course leaders. Instructor to delegate ratio was ideal, I found that most of my scans were supervised by one of the instructors allowing invaluable personalised feedback. At no point did the course feel rushed; the pace, depth of content and practice time was perfect for an introductory level.

The introduction to MSK Ultrasound course is an excellent, accessible introduction to diagnostic ultrasound. I left feeling more confident and less intimated with an appetite for further education in this field. I would highly recommend this course to anyone seeking an introduction to diagnostic ultrasound.
