Overview

Welcome to Johns Hopkins Hospital School of Cardiac Sonography, Echocardiography Program. The program is a 14-month full-time accredited program beginning July of the enrollment year and running continuously through August of the following year.

This program is designed to provide clinical training, including hands-on practice, for echocardiographic sonography and an academic curriculum in echocardiographic principles, technology, physics and instrumentation. Our goal is to prepare competent entry-level adult cardiac sonographers in the cognitive (knowledge), psychomotor (skills), and affective (behavior) learning domains. We are dedicated to training sonographers who exemplify this standard and degree of excellence. Upon completion of the program, graduates will be eligible to sit for the ARDMS and/or CCI Registry Exams.

One of the many advantages of the Johns Hopkins program is that all clinical training is performed at one location. There is a strong collaboration with the didactic and clinical instructors to ensure harmony throughout the program.

The Johns Hopkins Echocardiography Lab offers a variety of educational offerings in conjunction with the school didactic sessions. This includes weekly staff education sessions, weekly Cardiology Fellowship Echocardiogram case review, the Legend in Echo Series and Cardiology Grand Rounds.
