Biographical details

Jill is an experienced sonographer and educator qualified in General and Cardiac ultrasound with a Masters in Health Science Education, and has been involved in ultrasound education for many years. Currently the Course Director for the Postgraduate Program in Medical Sonography, Jill was appointed Senior Lecturer in 2000 and created the first academic ultrasound program in Australia to combine general, cardiac and vascular ultrasound specialisations and the first Masters level program in sonography. She has taught courses in all aspects of the postgraduate ultrasound course, introductory sonography to undergraduate medical radiation science students, and other postgraduate courses including ultrasound for physiotherapists. Jill has been closely involved with the profession, with voluntary contributions as Chair of the DMU Board of Examiners for the Australasian Society for Ultrasound in Medicine and invited presentations for the Australian Sonographers Association.

Research interests

Just as ultrasound imaging has vast applications across clinical practice and research, Jill enjoys undertaking a diverse range research interests including Assessment in Higher Education, in which she is currently undertaking a PhD; Sonographer Role Extension and Physiotherapy research. Jill's current research students are involved in obstetric, cardiac and vascular research, sonographer practitioner research and physiotherapy research.

Teaching and supervision

Coordination of Sonography Course with special interests in Abdominal, Cardiac and Vascular Sonography, Role Expansion for Sonographers and teaching anatomy utilising ultrasound.
