Are you a registered vascular technologist (RVT) or registered vascular specialist (RVS) looking to advance your career?

Our degree completion program allows you to complete a Bachelor of Science in Vascular Technology online via Oregon Institute of Technology.

About the Vascular Ultrasound Program

The program integrates basic medical science with vascular ultrasound diagnostic courses and a general education core. Our degree completion program offers you continuing education in your profession, advancement or new options in your career, and the bachelor's degree required for entry into master's degree programs. Many of our students go on to advanced degrees in business, education and more.


You will begin the program with a foundation for degree completion built upon two sources: credit you complete at another college and transfer to Oregon Tech and credit granted for professional registries. For example, 84 credits are granted for RVT or RVS credentials.

Once you are admitted to the program, our staff will conduct a transfer evaluation of your prior coursework to see which classes are applicable toward your bachelor’s degree. After the evaluation is complete, we will contact you with an advising guide showing your transfer credits, registry credits, and future classes needed for completion. You may view the curriculum, including courses granted for registry, under Curriculum.
