The focus of this program is echocardiography (sonography of the heart) and includes some vascular sonography instruction. The curriculum provides the individual with the knowledge and skills necessary to acquire, process, and evaluate the human heart using high frequency sound waves to produce images of the heart. Course work includes effective communication and patient care skills combined with knowledge of physics, human anatomy, physiology, and pathology all of which are essential to obtaining high quality sonographic images. Students will learn through classroom, lab, and clinical instruction. Travel is required to clinical education sites.

Graduates may find employment in hospitals, physician’s offices, diagnostic outpatient centers, mobile services, and educational institutions.
