Diploma of Diagnostic Ultrasound (DDU)

The ASUM Diploma of Diagnostic Ultrasound (DDU) is an internationally accepted professional qualification certifying those specialist clinicians performing diagnostic ultrasound services. The DDU is a self-paced course, whereby candidates prepare for a range of assessments in their own time using a variety of learning materials.

A DDU graduate is a specialist medical practitioner who has overall responsibility for ensuring the most accurate and valid information possible is obtained from the ultrasound examination. The DDU graduate is then responsible for using the acquired information to meaningfully contribute to clinical patient management and would usually have diagnostic ultrasound as a major focus of their practice.

Please refer to Clause 2 of the DDU Regulations for information regarding entry requirements.

Please refer to the DDU Supervisor Handbook for information regarding DDU Supervisor requirements.

The DDU is divided into three (3) modules; Module 1, Module 2 and Module 3. Modules 1 and 2 can be undertaken concurrently.
