The First Philippine Imaging & Diagnostic Institute Incorporated (FPIDII) is a post graduate training institute that was formally opened last September, 2009. It is a center solely dedicated to education, training and research in Diagnostic Ultrasound and Color Doppler that primarily deals with various clinical applications of ultrasound through relative modular courses.
The short courses offered with the duration of 2-3 months are intended for health professionals who are interested to acquire basic knowledge in imaging. These courses can be considered as their educational advancement among others.
To assure that the necessary outcomes will be met, the training center limits the admission of trainees per module. Customized schedules are provided to the trainees at their most convenient time.
Basic theories relevant to the modular courses are carried out by Medical Specialists according to their field of practice and specialization. Hands-on and guided scanning is facilitated by the Radiologic Technologists/ Sonographers who are knowledgeable and with the necessary experiences and qualifications in their particular modular assignment.
To ensure accessibility to the training centre, the FPIDII accepts stay-in trainees accommodated at the third floor of the same building for the purpose. Therefore trainees coming from other provinces do not have to worry as to where to conveniently stay while undergoing the abovementioned training at a very reasonable amount.
Trainees are well informed as regards to their duties and responsibilities with respect to their assignments. The length of training is clearly specified as well as their schedules. Upon the trainees’ completion of the required number of hours, final evaluation will be conducted by a Radiologist. The issuance of certificates follows after the student passed the necessary set of requirements and standard competency for each module.
