1. What is your Name, current position, Title, and work place?  
Shannon Rogato, Cardiac Sonographer at Lahey Clinic Hospital in Burlington, MA.
2. What was your background before you entered the program?  
I had a Bachelors in Criminal Justice from the University of Massachusetts Lowell and wanted to be in the medical field, so I took my prerequisite courses and started researching schools in the area for cardiac ultrasound, when I found the Hoffman Heart Institute Program I knew it would be a perfect fit, very career oriented and straight forward, which is exactly what I was looking for.
3. How did the program prepare you to work in the field of cardiac ultrasound?  
The program prepared me in a number of ways, the classroom portion is great and very interactive and the clinical hours really let me train hands on right from the very beginning, by the time graduation came around I felt confident in both my knowledge and skills in the field. There is a lot to learn but I feel the Hoffman Heart Institute of Cardiac Ultrasound gave me a strong foundation that will stay with me throughout my career.
