We are passionate about delivering high quality courses, and as a result we can now announce this cadaveric musculoskeletal injection course at The Human Anatomy Lab, Imperial College London, Charing Cross Hospital.
This unique comprehensive, two day, cadaveric musculoskeletal ultrasound guided injection course in London, offers you the next best training tool to performing injections on patients. It provides a unique opportunity to learn and develop your injection skills directly on the anatomy you will encounter in your clinic! With a blend of short lectures and dynamic, hands-on practicals with soft preserved cadavers you will have plenty of opportunity to fine tune your skills. With a maximum of 3 delegates per ultrasound machine, and a high tutor:delegate ratio, you will have regular feedback and practical time. There will be a strong clinical focus throughout the course and the majority of peripheral joint injections will be covered.
- Optimise an ultrasound image and demonstrate a basic ultrasound examination of upper and lower limb target structures.
- Outline the steps necessary for successful completion of an ultrasound-guided procedure and dynamically track needles using ultrasound guidance.
- Discuss the role of ultrasound-guided procedures in the evaluation and management of MSK conditions.
- List the steps necessary to perform aseptic advanced ultrasound-guided MSK Interventions.

'Just wanted to drop you an email to say thanks to you and the team for the course. I thought it was a very difficult course to organise logistically and technically and it ran very well. It was great having a wide array of tutors present to benefit form their individual experience and expertise, they were all extremely helpful and gave 100%. The different US machines and choice of cadaveric specimens also assisted variety of learning experience. It was also great to have a variety of clinicians from various countries and to speak to them and share their experience. The venue was great and the DR room team were extremely knowledgeable and helpful. I hope it went well from your point of view. I would highly recommend my colleagues attend if they have the opportunity.
'This course was great! Unique in its setup, great teachers, great materials and all this in a fantastically open and relaxed atmosphere. I would recommend to everyone who wants to start doing USGI to definitely attend this course.'
' Great teaching faculty, well organised, small group numbers is a bonus. Good ratio of tutors to cadavers.'
'Congratulations on organising such an excellent course - organisationally and technically demanding'

You may apply for this course provided you have the necessary course pre-requisites
- Have prior experience of utilising MSK diagnostic ultrasound within your practice – an introductory musculoskeletal ultrasound course is sufficient.
- Have an understanding on how you can use injection therapy in your job role, and the relevant governance surrounding it. If your are an Allied Health Professional we expect you to have competency in landmark guided injection techniques and have completed a recognised course prior to embarking on guided procedures..
- Are employed in a professional environment that enables you to utilise this within your practice
- Recognised professional medical qualification and current registration with a relevant UK professional body eg HCPC or GMC, or foreign equivalent if travelling from abroad.
What do I gain from attending this course?
This course does not offer a certificate of competency as there is no assessment component to the course. In isolation , this course is not a certification in diagnostic musculoskeletal ultrasound and it does not replace the need for ongoing supervised experience of considerable number of cases. The Royal College of Radiologist (RCR) guidance document on US training is a useful reference point HERE
We receive many enquiries regarding competency in ultrasound and advise you to read this article, ' How do I train in MSK Ultrasound' for further information on ultrasound use in the UK.
There is currently no generic or universally accepted competency in the use of ultrasound, nor is ultrasound currently governed by protected use of title. As such, we would like to make clear that attending our ultrasound course is not designed to establish a full competency within the use of musculoskeletal ultrasound.
If your attendance on the course is to be funded by your trust or you have any other queries then please contact via [email protected]
