  Our CAAHEP Accredited One Year program provides an extensive education in abdominal and OB/GYN sonography. Graduates will be well versed in current techniques and at ease with many commercially available ultrasound systems. Many of our clinical affiliates perform neonatal neurosonology, vascular and echocardiography examinations. One year students have the opportunity of rotating through these areas for an introduction to the techniques practiced in each specialty. Other specialties emphasized in the one year program include transvaginal sonography, transrectal scanning of the prostate and high risk obstetrics. Clinical rotations in hospitals departments of varying sizes, outpatient clinics and on mobile units prepare the student to function in a variety of work situations. Graduates will be prepared to sit for the SPI, Abdomen, Breast and OB/GYN Registry exams.
