Online Guide Ranks UF’s Sonography Program as One of Best in the Nation
The University of Findlay’s Sonography Program has been named to College Choice’s Best Ultrasound Technician Schools 2016 list.
UF ranked in the top 25, as the list was alphabetical, in a national listing compiled by the online service that also included schools such as Ohio State University and Rutgers University. The full list can be found here.
The University of Findlay has one of the fastest professional ultrasound technologist programs in the country, College Choice explained. “It is a program designed to prepare students to become outstanding ultrasound professionals through a highly innovative educational format.”
Earlier this year, the Sonography Program earned national accreditation by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Diagnostic Medical Sonography, making it one of only three higher learning institutions in Ohio that offer bachelor’s degrees in this discipline to earn the status.
The program was launched in spring 2015 and offers three areas of study, including diagnostic medical sonography, vascular sonography and echocardiography. For more program information, visit UF’s website.

“Like so many medical professions, the job outlook for ultrasound technologists of any sort is extremely favorable,” College Choice’s website notes. “The (U.S.) Bureau of Labor and Statistics, for instance, projects over a 40 percent growth of the profession by 2020, with over 20,000 new jobs being added to the field. Furthermore, with an average annual salary of around $65,000 for technicians and around $80,000 for managers and supervisors, you can expect a financially stable career for yourself,” it continued.
College Choice’s rankings are based on college freshmen polled during a nationwide survey published by the Higher Education Research Institute at UCLA, and from other publicly available sources such as U.S. News & World Report and the National Center for Education Statistics.
