ASMI prides itself on producing the best, most qualified and competent Sonographers in the country. Below is a testimonial from a recent ASMI GPMU graduate, Lincoln Stow, who has advanced his career and gained the training he always dreamed of…
“In early 2010, I was a radiographer with an interest in ultrasound but I didn’t have an immediate, clear pathway to pursue my goal of becoming a sonographer. I’d had non-committal, idle promises for some training in the ultrasound department… however, staffing issues always got in the way.
“I’d heard about ASMI through several sonographers and the respect within the industry that ASMI has is what led me to investigate further. I visited the campus in Hornsby, met the lecturers and tutors and was impressed with the facilities. A little while later, my life was a focus of ultrasound training and it was simply amazing what was covered in 14 weeks of intensive, hands-on training.
“The training covered vital theory cementing important knowledge of anatomy and pathophysiology. This theory was always related back to what the sonographic representation should be and how to best demonstrate it. It’s this knowledge that ensures the graduates are clinically focused sonographers as well as technically proficient scanners.
“Importantly, the techniques and methods developed by the graduates come from a vast pool of experience held by the specialist lecturers and trainers, whom are recognised leaders in the industry. Important tips and techniques that are developed may take years to come across without this focused, directed training.
“Ultrasound is a difficult but immensely rewarding job. Particularly when you have the skills and knowledge to do the job well and this is recognised by the team of health professionals that rely on you.
“I can sincerely recommend ASMI as a thorough, targeted and inspiring pathway to immediately develop your career as a medical imaging professional.”
