Ultrasound ProgramGurnick Academy of Medical Arts’ Fresno location recently received approval from the Accrediting Bureau for Health Education Schools to offer an associate of science degree in ultrasound technology. Previously, the ultrasound technology program was only available at the academy’s San Mateo campus.

“This opens the door for residents of the Fresno area to have the opportunity to pursue a career in diagnostic medical Sonography,” said Claudia Von Zamory, the institution’s ultrasound technology program director.

With a start date of July 7, 2015, the program seeks to prepare students for entry-level employment as a diagnostic medical sonographer with specialization in general sonography, including abdominal and small parts, obstetrics and gynecology and vascular sonography. Upon graduation, students will be qualified to work in hospitals, imaging centers, physicians’ offices, or clinics, and educated to pass the ARDMS, ARRT(S) and RVT certification exam.

The Associate of Science in Ultrasound Technology Program is recognized by American Registry of Radiologic Technologists.
