Take the First Step Toward Your Health Care Career Now!
You won’t find a year’s worth of general education courses as part of any student’s schedule here: instead, we’ve done away with the unrelated curriculum and focused each program on the skills and training that a graduate will need when they start their new career. So a nursing student isn’t required to study US History I, and an IT student doesn’t need to take Philosophy 101. This means students can graduate in significantly less time, often in months not years. For example, the LPN day program is just 12 months in length, and the electrician apprenticeship day program schedule is only 9 months.
Every path of study at Eastwick has been developed to meet a specific job market demand and is backed by a robust set of industry certifications and affiliations. For example, students of the diagnostic cardiovascular sonography associate degree are able to sit for seven different certifications (RMA, CET, CPT, CCT, RCS, RVS, and SPI) and can return later and transfer their previous credits to the bachelor degree path. The program is also approved by CAAHEP, providing some of the best career opportunities for graduates.
One thing you won’t see are students worrying whether they’ll get into the classes they need that semester: each student at Eastwick College is guaranteed the classes they need to graduate on time, including externships for those in medical programs. By providing students with an optimized set of classes for each semester, you’re able to focus more on your studies and less on scheduling conflicts. It also saves you money, as there is no need to take extra semesters just to finish one or two classes that weren’t available previously, as is often the case at many traditional four-year colleges.
Medical assistants are often the first person someone sees when they step into the doctor’s office, working at the front desk where they greet patients, schedule appointments and filing a patient’s medical records. When they’re not handling traditional office duties, medical assistants perform a variety of medical tasks, which can include taking medical histories and recording vital signs, explaining procedures to patients, preparing patients for examinations and assisting physicians.
The objective of the Medical Assisting Science program is to prepare an individual to enter the medical field in the capacity of medical assistant, medical office manager or medical secretary. Other opportunities exist in the hospital setting as a patient care technician, ECG technician, stress test technician, phlebotomist, unit secretary, or ward clerk.
Through our diagnostic medical sonography bachelor’s degree, you’ll help patients learn answers to important questions like, “Is it a boy or a girl?” and record images for a wide range of other specializations including abdominal sonography, breast sonography, thyroid, and more.
Thanks to a unique curriculum structure, students can choose to start with a 9 month medical assisting certificate program, and return at any point to transfer their previous credits into the associate and bachelor’s sonography degrees.
Employment of diagnostic medical sonographers is projected to grow 23 percent by 2026, more than three times the national average for all occupations, adding over 100,000 new jobs. Take advantage of this growing demand through our diagnostic medical sonography degree.
Eastwick College’s Bachelor of Science in Diagnostic Cardiovascular Sonography (BS-DxCV) program is structured as a bridge from our AAS in Diagnostic Cardiovascular Sonography, with additional managerial and technical skills to provide enhanced career opportunities in the areas of registered non-invasive echocardiographer, vascular technologist, or cardiovascular technician.
Graduates of the program will be eligible to apply for the following credentials administered by Cardiovascular Credentialing International (CCI): Registered Cardiac Sonographer (RCS) and Registered Vascular Specialist (RVS); and for the following credentials administered by the American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonography (ARDMS): Registered Diagnostic Cardiac Sonographer (RDCS) and Registered Vascular Technologist (RVT).
