Training at IVS

At IVS we pride ourselves on giving our trainees the highest quality education to fully equip them for their career in vascular ultrasound.

Each new trainee is assigned a mentor to guide them through their technical and theoretical training. We also have a training team consisting of our Clinical Training Manager (Hannah Leonard) and three Clinical Training Officers. The team oversee all aspects of training and organise regular teaching sessions to guide trainees through their exams and enable them to become proficient in all aspects of the job.

In the first one to two years of employment trainees spend periods at university to complete a PgC in vascular ultrasound. There are further written and practical exams in the second and third years of training towards the ultimate aim of achieving accreditation with the Society for Vascular Technology, our governing body.

Following accreditation all of our staff are encouraged to develop their skill base and to further their knowledge and expertise, developing new scanning techniques and participating in novel and ongoing research projects.

In order to achieve ongoing skill development and to maintain accreditation, all qualified staff are required to undertake continued professional development and education tasks,  including things such as delivering a presentation at a vascular conference, mastering a new scanning technique or lecturing at study days. This ensures that our staff continue to develop new skills and enhance old skills even after having becoming fully qualified.
