ABOUT THE PROGRAM
The Hill College Echocardiography Program is a two-year course of study leading to an associate of applied science degree in Echocardiography Technology. It prepares a student to enter the workforce as an echocardiography technician producing echocardiograms.
An echocardiogram is a painless, noninvasive procedure using ultrasound waves to create pictures and take measurements of the inside of a person’s heart.
The Hill College program is comprehensive through the teaching of scanning skills, pathophysiology, cardiovascular pharmacology and all the skills and knowledge necessary to become a registered cardiac sonographer.
The program also includes more than 900 hours of clinical work performed at hospitals and clinics.
