Mission Statement

The mission of the Hoffman Heart and Vascular Institute of Connecticut School of Cardiac Ultrasound is to provide a competency-based educational and clinical experience that will prepare our students to work in the profession of a cardiac sonographer. At the end of the yearlong training program, the student will be prepared to take the national registry exam offered by the Cardiovascular Credentialing International (CCI) and the American Registry of Diagnostic Medical Sonographers (ARDMS), and demonstrate the necessary skills and experience to obtain a job as a cardiac sonographer. The School provides a curriculum in which caring and compassion is integrated into the development of both professional and technical expertise
