Within the medical industry, heart-related procedures ranging from surgery to sonography and monitoring require a great degree of care and training. By capturing images of the heart and its chambers, cardiac sonographers work to provide more information on a patient’s heart. The equipment used to diagnose and treat heart conditions is more sophisticated than ever, and it requires specialized training and experience to operate properly. This is a limited enrollment program.
Your expertise as a registered cardiac sonographer will help put your patient’s mind—and heart—at ease. Baker College’s cardiac sonography degree program combines both academic study and hands-on training to provide the experience you need to properly perform cardiac echo testing for patients. Through academic and clinical training, this program will prepare you to provide patient services using diagnostic ultrasound equipment under the supervision of a doctor of cardiology.
The Baker College Associate of Applied Science in Cardiac Sonography degree program is a two-year, CAAHEP-accredited program consisting of 73 credit hours (28 hours of prerequisites and 44 hours of major courses). Our curriculum includes human anatomy and physiology, three 16-week clinical experiences with required lab hours and a board review (capstone).
I chose Baker for the curriculum. They look at what you’re going to need, and a lot of MBAs are general. ... I felt that a lot of the things that I was doing in school I could directly translate into what I was doing in the hospital.
