Each unit is accredited for training by the Combined Royal Colleges Training Committee. The training centres offer a specified number of training sessions.

The training places are all allocated to year 4/5 Specialist Trainees working within the West Midlands Deanery.  The places are allocated by the Regional Ultrasound Group, by making representations to the Higher Training Committee regarding the rotation of doctors to the various units within the region.  Much of the training is actually undertaken by experienced radiographers within each unit.

The training program involves 300 hours of scanning within approved training sessions after acceptance onto the training program.  A logbook of 10 long and 40 short cases with images is submitted to the RCOG/RCR committee and the trainee must attend the annual theoretical course held at the RCOG.
