Diagnostic Echocardiography

Serve a Vital Function on the Patient Cardiac Care Team

The TJC Diagnostic Echocardiography program teaches you the specialized skills you'll need to use state-of-the-art imaging technology to help physicians diagnose heart conditions in patients.

As a Diagnostic Echocardiographer, you'll perform diagnostic examinations using imaging technology, as requested by a physician, that produces high-frequency sound waves that create "moving pictures" of the heart. You'll work with the cardiac care team to assess the overall condition of the heart and help diagnose any existing cardiac abnormalities. The demand for this medical specialty is expected to grow by 10% in the next ten years.

Please note: All courses are face-to-face, in daytime hours only. No online or night classes are offered at this time.
