Cardiac Ultrasound Program

Vascular Ultrasound Program


As our schooling is coming to an end I just wanted to let you know what an amazing experience this has been!  To see how much much we’ve all learned and how far we’ve come is unbelievable!  I’ve recommended this program to everyone who asks about it!  Kelly is BY FAR the most amazing instructor I’ve ever had during any of my years of higher education!  Her ability to deliver information in a completely understandable manner has made all of us what we are today!  Not only did she teach us in the lab, everything we’ve learned in the classroom has been more than I ever would have expected.  She cares so much about all of us succeeding and it has shown from day one!  I have no doubt in my mind that her support and encouragement through this year has made us SONOGRAPHERS!  She’s there for advice day and night.  She’s been someone who I could count on for advice during clinicals and her willingness to go above and beyond to help everyone on an individual level has set this program so much higher than any other program around.  Just hearing other people at my clinicals describe their programs and experiences has made me so happy I went with AZ Heart Foundation and had what appears to be the most personable, caring, and knowledgeable instructor in this entire field!

Thanks for everything!
