Vascular Ultrasound Technologists use their unique expertise to examine the veins and arteries of patients, making sure their blood is flowing as it should.
In the region’s only vascular sonography certificate program, you’ll learn the specialized skills to conduct ultrasounds on veins and arteries throughout the body. Our hands-on curriculum includes clinical rotations through a variety of health care facilities, as well as experiential learning through vascular scanning in our on-campus ultrasound suite.
