Physics and Instrumentations

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank Dr Rob Gill and ASMI for the wonderful course I attended.

Some think I am crazy pursuing a career change and one that is not necessarily in line with my previous qualifications and experience.

Personally I viewed Physics as a challenge and a subject I had little interest in but appreciated the need for understanding and as such I enrolled in the Physics and Instrumentation course held last week to give me the best start possible!  Well it did this and more…

The nature of the course material and manner in which it was delivered is a credit to Dr Gill and his skill as an educator and knowledge of his field.

Before attending I had a very basic idea but upon completion of the course, through group discussion and clever delivery, Dr Gill has helped to prepare me for what I now view as an exciting aspect of my new career.

I would like to thank you once again for making this course available to students outside of your ASMI program and recommend it for anyone in my situation.”

− Erica C., Bachelor in Human Movement science

− Stephanie Ch., Trainee Sonographer

“Anna and Geordanna are really fantastic tutors. Sharing their knowledge I learn a lot from them. Worth every single penny. I will be very keen for the Lower Limb MSK”                                                                                                                                                                           − Seema Ch., Perth WA

Alison D., Sonographer NSW

“The seminar was excellent as you keep the numbers of the attendees minimal, so one can get the hands on that this is all about.”

Thobekile M., Hamilton, NZ

“This was the most useful seminar I have attended. There was plenty of opportunity to ask questions and a very intensive, hands on approach meant I learnt a lot that I can translate into my own practical skills.”

Heather W., Wembley, WA

“Brilliant lectures and practical scanning. The seminar has helped me to understand the theories much better.”

Connie P., Homebush West, NSW

“The seminar I attended was the upper limb MSK which
included shoulder, elbow, wrist and hand. I cannot speak
highly enough of the quality of the entire 3 days. The seminar
was lead by a well-known MSK “guru” Stephen Bird and he
conducted an excellent, informative and comprehensive series
of lectures. Stephen is a natural teacher, who clearly enjoys
imparting all his knowledge. I especially gained a lot of practical
experience during the course as he provided “hands-on”
scanning directly after each sub-section of each topic,
enabling me to cement theoretical knowledge. The lectures
covered normal structures, anatomy (in detail), scan techniques,
pathology, surgical intervention, live scanning video of structures
and pathology plus his personal “tricks of the trade” when
searching for difficult structures. Thank you to Stephen and all
at ASMI for providing me with the tools to become a competent
upper limb MSK sonographer”.

ASMI GPMU Trainee

“I don’t regret for a second going ahead with the GPMU. 14 weeks down the track and I’ve learnt an immense amount of information that I’ll carry with me throughout my career.

Danielle W.
ASMI Student

“ASMI was the beginning of a career change for me. Coming from a medical background, I wanted to give my career as a sonographer the best possible start, and ASMI gave me this opportunity with their GPMU program. Not only was the training excellent and provided a really strong foundation, the credit given at various universities for having completed the course was a valuable head start for the Graduate Diploma of Medical Ultrasound. It was a bit daunting initially to sign up for the course without a secured placement, however, ASMI kept looking for a position for me throughout the course and managed to secure one shortly after completing it. I sincerely recommend it!”

Nicola N.
ASMI Student

 

“I am doing my last semester right now and hopefully I will pass all the exams by the end of the year and then become qualified. My training is going well, busy and challenging and every day I can learn something new.

I just wanted to thank you and all the ASMI tutors and staff for training me and all the kindest help to me all the time! I am so proud that I was trained by ASMI!”

Simon W.
ASMI Student

 

“I come from a radiation therapy background and was studying ultrasound externally. While departments are keen to employ sonographers because of the nationwide shortage, they are not so keen to employ trainee sonographers because they just don’t have the staff to train them. The training I received at ASMI made it possible for me to get the hands on experience and background theoretical knowledge not available through University courses.

The resources at ASMI are excellent, we all had plenty of access to the ultrasound machines, all studies are demonstrated by highly qualified tutors, and there are daily supervised and unsupervised scanning practical sessions. Three to four times a week formal in depth lectures are given, I found these invaluable. The staff at ASMI are amazing, they are all very approachable and supportive, and will guide you through passing on tips and techniques they have found helpful throughout their careers as sonographers.”

The course is very intense because you learn so much in a relatively short amount of time, it is also very rewarding. I am now working full time as a trainee sonographer and all of my ASMI training has made the transition into the workplace a lot easier because I have a solid base on which to build. I would encourage anyone considering doing the ASMI course to take the leap and do it, it will be the best investment you could make in your future.”

Julie N.

“I was impressed with the instructor. She was very knowledgeable and had lots of patientce .”
- Donna G., Canberra ACT

The advanced ultrasound course was of extreme benefit.

The course notes were easy to understand and covered quite a lot of information.”

ASMI Seminar Series for emergency physicians

“I found the ASMI Emergency Physician’s Ultrasound Course to be very enlightening. I particularly appreciated being taught by experts, including an ultrasound engineer, an emergency physician and a senior sonographer. The practical approach gave me new skills to match the theoretical knowledge.”

Dr Jim W.
Emergency Department Director, Taree Hospital.

“I came with a fear of the unknown – the ultrasound – the grey and white images had never made sense to me, but after the well organized and individualized attention at ASMI, I left with an understanding not only of the machine but also the ability to capture meaningful imagines and to understand what I was looking at. I didn’t need an emergency consultant or radiologist, I needed Rob, the clinical director and a very experienced ultrasonographer to guide me through the tricks of the trade which can only be enhanced with practice and that I think was and is the reason I left satisfied with my ability.”

Dr Vidya Ramcharitar M.
Emergency Fellow,
The Children’s Hospital, Westmead
