Our cardiac sonography degree program can help you get to the heart of a great career.
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.
- Our program provides classroom studies and lab experience to help you learn the latest techniques using the most up-to-date and advanced cardiac sonography equipment available.
- By combining our programs with real-world experience and extensive clinical course work, you’ll get the experience and training you need to become a credentialed sonographer leading to a successful career as a cardiac sonographer.
- The Associate of Applied Science in Cardiac Sonography degree program at Baker College is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP).
