Concorde Career College to offer new degree in sonography

In an effort to address the growing demand for health care professionals, Concorde Career Colleges has launched a new program in sonography at their San Bernardino campus.

The Associate of Science Degree in Cardiovascular Sonography blends online coursework with in-person lab instruction and clinical experience. Students can complete their degree in as little as twenty months.

Ultrasound imagery first became part of medical treatment in the 1940s. Today, sonographers play an important role in assessing the health of pregnancies, detecting tumors, evaluating heart function and creating images of other soft tissues, including the major organs and arteries.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of diagnostic medical sonographers and cardiovascular technologists is projected to grow 10 percent by 2032, much faster than the average for all occupations.

“Expanding our programs across existing campus footprints is a key focus of UTI’s growth, diversification, and optimization strategy,” said Kevin Prehn, president of Concorde Career Colleges. “At Concorde, the addition of these healthcare programs further bolsters our relationships with local dental partners and hospital affiliates who are seeking to fill these in-demand roles.”
