What you will learn:
When you obtain an Oregon Tech degree in Echocardiography (cardiac ultrasound) you will be prepared to use the extensive skills learned to obtain ultrasound images of the heart for diagnosis of cardiac related issues in adults and children.
Oregon Tech maintains high-performance ultrasound machines to ensure that students are learning on the same equipment they will come across within their careers. While many schools use second-hand systems, partnerships with medical technology suppliers allow Oregon Tech to provide equipment that matches that found in the best healthcare settings. These machines are located in on-campus labs to provide students with on-site training and additional availability for practice.
With the combined technical and communication skills taught at Oregon Tech in this exciting field, graduates have had a 99% pass rate on the ARDMS (American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonography) certification board exams for the past 10 years.
