The way you could look inside a heart took a giant leap in 2016 when we opened our Health Sciences Center near Grayling.
The technology available there is gonna make a world of difference when you get ready to look for a job.
You’re going to be ready to land a great job! Did you know, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, cardiac (diagnostic) sonographers makes an average of more than $63,000 a year? Plus, the field is expected to grow by 24% before 2024. That’s much faster than average job growth!
Our Cardiac Sonography program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (www.caahep.org) upon the recommendation of Joint Review Committee on Education in Cardiovascular Technology
As a graduate of the program, you’ll be qualified to apply for the Cardiovascular Credentialing International (CCI) exam. Our national credentialing exams pass rate is 100% and our job placement rate is 77.8%. You’re going to be set for success!
Not only will you easily find a great job, you’ll confidently accept job offers from employers that are expecting you to be ready to use the latest technology in the field.
If you’re interested in working in the healthcare field and are comfortable with science and technology, you really should consider cardiac sonography.
And think about this: If you know you want to work in healthcare but aren’t sure how you’ll do with blood and guts, this program really should be on your radar. If helping others is your thing, but you’d like to take a pass on the gore, cardiac sonography is a great option
Cardiac Sonography uses ultrasound imaging to diagnose life-threatening illnesses or conditions in the heart. The procedure is used to identify irregularities in and around a heart simply by what the sonographer sees and hears. You could become part of a team that improves the lives of thousands of people — and you’re likely to save hundreds of lives during your career — simply by being the one that does the test.
Our cardiac sonography program includes clinicals at hospitals and diagnostic labs — so you’ll be ready to use your skills in a doctor’s office, hospital, lab or even in higher education. Clinicals are available right here in Michigan, but if traveling piques your interest, you should know you can also do clinicals outside the state. How many more great reasons do you need to check out our cardiac sonography program?
OK. So we’ll give you one more reason to consider us.
