Cardiac Sonography Training in Florida - FL

The best way to go about getting your cardiac sonography training in Florida is to attend a two-year training program culminating in an associate’s degree.

For those looking for a higher level of education, for promotional or self-enrichment purposes, bachelor’s are available, but most people won’t need to go that far.

Once in school, your CAAHEP approved curriculum in Florida will focus intensively on the human heart and cardiovascular system, and how to handle an ultrasound machine. Cardiac sonographers are specialists, working in a very specific area, and so a complete and thorough understanding of these areas is absolutely vital. Expect to go over both in great detail.

Usually the second year involves a lot of clinical time, where you’ll perform echocardiograms of both the transthorasic and transesophageal variety, as well as the handful of other diagnostic tests a cardiac sonographer has to be able to run. You will do this under the guidance and supervision of your instructors and trained medical staff.

Consider getting accredited by one of the national regulatory bodies for cardiac sonographers. Though not necessary to practice in Florida, many employers will require it, and even among those that don’t; it will give you an extra edge. Earning credentials involves paying a nominal fee, taking a comprehensive examination that tests your clinical skills and general knowledge, and fulfilling set continuing education requirements.  Though optional, it may be what you need to land the job you want as a cardiac sonographer in Florida.
