Listen to our students...
- Carissa Marsiglio
The combination of classroom and clinical time ensured that I would be prepared for my registry, possible interviews, and would be prepared to start working in the field right out of school.
- Audrey LoCastro
This program has prepared me for the field of Diagnostic Cardiac Ultrasound in more ways than I can count!
- Daniel Bourque
Through the coursework I felt as though there was not a situation that I would encounter in echo that I would not have some understanding of.
- Lynsy Edgerton
I have confidence in my skills and knowledge, and know that I have resources at the tips of my fingers when I don't know the answer.
- Deborah Fox
I believe that the support and training that I received from each and every instructor/mentor/doctor, nurse, and fellow echo cardiographer was immeasurable.
