CASE Representative

The SVT is looking for a representative to sit on the CASE committee as part of the member organisations. You will sit within the SVT Education committee and report CASE activity back to the Education Chair. On the CASE committee you will provide expert advice and knowledge with regards to vascular ultrasound, physics, and education and training, therefore it would suit an experienced accredited vascular scientist with a specific interest and knowledge of educational frameworks and standards, and experience of lecturing is an advantage. There are 3-4 Committee meetings per year, and historically took place in either York or London, and more recently blended with Teams meetings.  You will be supported by a second SVT CASE rep.

About CASE:

CASE is an organisation that exists to accredit sonographic courses delivered within the UK, and works closely with universities and other higher-education institutions to ensure the highest standards are met.  CASE is a not-for-profit organisation which relies on volunteers to commit their time to ensure the students who graduate from our accredited courses do so with the best in education, mentor support and clinical competency and thus preparing the sonographic workforce of the future. In addition to offering accreditation of new, and re-accreditation of established ultrasound education programmes, CASE undertakes annual monitoring of the courses it has accredited.

CASE consortium:

CASE consortium consists of a group of member organisations: British Medical Ultrasound Society (BMUS), British Society of Echocardiography (BSE), Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP), Royal College of Podiatry (RCOP), Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine (IPEM), Society and College of Radiographers (SCoR), and Society for Vascular Technology of Great Britain and Ireland (SVT). Each member organisation is unique and has its own obligations to its membership and its own agenda while CASE brings them together to provide a forum for the interchange of ideas in which shared views may be synthesised, and thus inform education and training programmes.
