Page 1: Healthcare Science Echocardiography Training Programme 2023-24 Funding Requests

Welcome to the Healthcare Science expression of interest form for Echocardiography Training Programme (ETP) trainee posts commencing in September 2023.

Health Education England is funding training posts for Echocardiographers.  Trainees will complete a full-time integrated Postgraduate Certificate in Echocardiography developed in collaboration with the British Society of Echocardiography.  The programme is funded for 18 months.  In addition to the Postgraduate Certificate, successful graduates of the programme are awarded Level 2 BSE Accreditation in Transthoracic Echo.  

This programme is separate from the Scientist Training Programme and does not lead directly to eligibility for Clinical Scientist registration.  It is open to both in-service and direct entry candidates. 

Full details can be found on the National School of Healthcare Science website at

The National School of Healthcare Science reserves the right to make amendments to programmes following review and consultation.  Any amendments will be communicated before agreements to fund posts are finalised.

If your request is for both direct entry and in-service posts, you will be required to submit separate forms for each.

If you have multiple posts and they are all either direct entry or in-service, these can be included on the same request form.

The form can be saved and returned to at any stage, but please ensure that when you have completed the last question, you click on the finish button which will take you to the final page confirming submission.

Your request will not have been submitted until you reach the final confirmation page.

The portal will close at 17.00 on 15TH SEPTEMBER 2022
