The cardiac ultrasound program at Cardinal Tech prepares the student for a career as an integral part of the healthcare team. Our 12-month program consists of classroom, laboratory and simulator training - the likes of which are used at top hospitals and educational institutions such as Massachusetts General Hospital, UCLA Health, Duke University, Northwestern University, and Stanford University to name a few. We also require an externship portion after the class/lab portion is complete. Most students finish within a 12-16 month period.
Graduates may accept jobs in hospitals, physician practices, mobile services and laboratories. Experienced cardiac sonographers may enjoy positions as managers, researchers, educators, or with equipment manufacturers.
The U.S. Department of Labor’s job outlook for diagnostic medical sonographers is a 44% increase from 2010-2020 - a significant higher rate than the average occupation at 14%, and at an average salary of $65,000-$75,000 for experienced sonographers, the future is bright!
