Ultrasound is a Skill and an Art

Sonography is a skill and an art. Through a very thorough and advanced education, we assist you each step of the way and all in as little as one year. The ultrasound program is rigorous and customizable making our ultrasound program your personalized diagnostic ultrasound education. You can study the material to absolute mastery by repeating modules for optimal learning and to become the best sonographer you can be.


Students become proficient in

  • understanding anatomy, physiology, and pathology/anomalies for the organs and tissue they will be scanning in the field
  • observing patient signs and symptoms and incidences associated with pathology/anomalies
  • thinking 3-dimensionally
  • using scanning techniques that provide the most optimal visualization of targeted structures
  • noticing ultrasound appearances of organs and possible conditions
  • describing findings in an accompanying report
  • using the best ergonomics for longevity in the field
  • assisting physicians and/or radiologists in invasive procedures

An Enhanced Ultrasound Curriculum

Our school gives students the tools and time they need to successfully complete an education in sonography. Students use our postgraduate education in sonography in conjunction with their specific prior education to apply for the ARDMS certification examinations to become a certified sonographer. A certified sonographer has the best opportunity for employment. Our advanced education in diagnostic sonography gives students and edge to complete the necessary registry examinations. Students will have the competitive edge to be hired by dynamic ultrasound departments.

LEARN is our post-graduate educational approach that actuates our curriculum and connects instructors with students to work together towards success.
  • [My instructor] used traditional as well as some very innovative means of teaching to help her students gain an understanding of some very difficult concepts. Just as an example, to help us better grasp the terminology used in ultrasound, she took the class outside and had each of us find a collection of rocks. We were to describe the rocks in ultrasound terms. For instance, the rock could be described as having smooth or lobulated, irregular borders, homogenous or heterogeneous. If the rock happened to be black it would mean in US terms that it was fluid filled, sonolucent or hypoechoic. I will never forget that exercise because we all gained a much clearer understanding of ultrasound terminology after that experience.

  • [My instructor's] classes were fun, educational, and I learned lots from her. She is very educated and willing to try different methods of teaching in order for someone to understand difficult subjects such as physics.

  • [My instructor] is a true professional and an expert in the field. Her talent at teaching simple concepts, as well as more advanced topics, are both truly superior. She has excellent written and verbal communication skills. She devoted much of her energy to her students offering tutoring and career counseling on her off hours. She accomplished many tasks with great initiative and with a very positive attitude. She is a teacher who empowers her students with knowledge.

  • When I first started acoustic physics I was terrified because I really struggled thru my x-ray physics class when obtaining my degree in Technologic Radiologic Sciences. I just couldn't grasp the concept of things happening around me theoretically. [My instructor] made me feel very comfortable asking questions right from the start. She often stayed late to help when a further discussion was needed in order to have a complete understanding of the topic being discussed for the day. If one way of explaining a theory wasn't quite making sense she always had another way to explain it. I felt like I had a private tutor at times she was that helpful. At the end of the class, I felt confident enough to take my SPI without studying and I passed my first time.
