The Cardiovascular Sonography program’s goal is to prepare competent entry-level adult cardiac sonographers in the cognitive (knowledge), psychomotor (skills), and affective (behavior) learning domains. Knowledge and skills are obtained through in-depth instruction in the classroom, as well as hands-on experience in the lab and clinical settings. The program is nationally accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP). Graduates of a CAAHEP accredited program are eligible to seek certification through the American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonography.
