Echocardiography is an imaging technology that plays an important role in the diagnosis of all forms of heart disease. The cardiac sonographer obtains structural, functional, and hemodynamic information about the cardiovascular system for interpretation by a cardiologist. Our program provides hands-on scanning with an academic curriculum in echocardiographic principles, technology, ultrasound physics and instrumentation.
Clinical Affiliation: Students will be placed in a clinical affiliation for 7 months in medical centers throughout the United States. If a student does not complete specialty cardiovascular classes in three consecutive semesters, faculty and administration will determine whether courses must be repeated before enrolling in clinical internship.
Background checks and drug screenings are required for this program. Please see the Cardiovascular Policy Handbook and the Academic Handbook for the Health & Human Services Programs for additional/adjusted rules, regulations and policies regarding the Cardiac, Invasive and Vascular programs.
