Career Opportunities

Graduates are eligible to take the American Registry of Diagnostic Medical Sonographers examinations in adult echocardiography. Employment for cardiac sonographers is expected to grow by about 26 percent through 2016 — faster than the average for all occupations, according to the U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics. Procedures such as cardiac ultrasound are being performed more often as a replacement for more expensive and more invasive procedures. Due to advances in medicine and greater public awareness, signs of vascular disease can be detected earlier, creating demand for cardiovascular technologists and technicians to perform various procedures.
