What Students Say:

They pushed us throughout the pandemic. My clinical site is at a major hospital in the TMC. I plan to write both ARDMS and CCI exams by the time I complete my program at the end of the Fall 2021
Hannah O. I am in my third clinical rotation at a large hospital. It is hard work but I am enjoying the exposure and the training that I am receiving at such a well known hospital. I recommended my friend to the program at this college.
Edwardo G. Our classes are interactive. the teachers encourage team work and yes my Echocardiogram Technician program is not easy. There is so much to learn about heart valves, heart muscles, heart tumors, heart pressures, hemodynamics, physics, the equipment and more so you have to read, read and read some more. We have to work hard. We get lots of home work assignments and quizzes. so goofing off is not an option at all. I am doing my first clinical now at the same time I have lectures and labs which help me to tie the loose ends together.
Farouzah N. I got matched up with the perfect clinical site in a mid size hospital. The Sonographers at the hospital are graduates from Houston International College. They are tough on me but I like it. I get to do the scans and review cases with them I am learning the expectation of each doctor which is interesting because each one is different. I am also on campus once a week for lectures.
