Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide excellent educational opportunities, resources, and clinical experiences to meet the requirements of all students pursuing a career and certification in cardiovascular ultrasound diagnostics. CVIU sets high academic standards for its students and ensures students have a thorough understanding of the ultrasound principles, technology, and competency skills needed to confidently pursue a career in cardiovascular ultrasound. The didactic components are integrated with the practical application of ultrasound sonography through scanning labs and on-site application of the knowledge and competencies learned in the classroom. Any student completing any CVIU program will possess complete confidence in pursuing a career in ultrasound sonography. The goals of our faculty, staff, and clinical supervisors are twofold: first, to thoroughly train sonographers for entry-level positions, and second, to prepare students to successfully complete the Registry (certification) with either the American Registry of Diagnostic Medical Sonographers (ARDMS) or Cardiovascular Credentialing International (CCI). Faculty and staff emphasize “personalized attention” to ensure the success of CVIU students in fulfilling both these objectives.
