PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

This certificate program is designed to provide the essentials of sonographic techniques. Our curriculum leads the entry level student through primary sonographic education. Basic subjects explored include physical principles, vascular sonography and hemodynamics. Special emphasis is placed on enhancing the scope of the curriculum by providing additional learning opportunities in this vascular specialty. The curriculum also devotes significant time to developing “hands-on” laboratory skills. Each section of the course will conclude with a testing procedure to check the level of achievement of each student.

This thirteen month certificate program is designed to provide the essentials of vascular ultrasound techniques. The student will be tested at intervals throughout the program to check his/her level of achievement and progress.

Students attend classes and receive laboratory instruction for the first 8 months (day) and 13 months (evening) of the program. Day classes are scheduled from 9:00am – 3:00pm, Monday through Thursday. Evening classes are scheduled from 6:00pm – 10:00pm, Monday through Thursday.
