Ultrasound Technician students here at Healthcare Career College have had the chance to experience the newest technological advances in healthcare education. We’ve had the opportunity to expand our ultrasound lab to include ultrasound simulation that offers students the ability to scan a variety of pathologies that students would only see when out in the field. Healthcare Career College is one of the only schools in the surrounding area that offers this. Not only does our ultrasound simulation lab abide by social distancing guidelines, but gives students the edge when applying for a career as an Ultrasound Technician.

Advantages of Using Ultrasound Simulation
What are the advantages of practicing in an ultrasound simulation lab? Well, following Covid-19 and the challenge of social distancing, ultrasound simulation is not only a great alternative, but offered students the ability to learn how to recognize pathology by practicing on our state-of-the-art ScanTrainers. Many times, students won’t see pathology until they are out in the field. With our new ultrasound simulation lab, students are scanning abnormal ultrasound cases that may include; tumors, cysts, and carcinomas just to name a few.
Experiencing the newest technology in ultrasound gives students the edge when looking for employment after graduation. Students have the knowledge without having years of experience. Our ultrasound ScanTrainers not only offer real-time scanning, but gives students; feedback, measurements, and the ability to capture live images. Our scan-trainers offer over 3,000 case studies where students can perfect their scanning skills. Ms. Pamela Cramer, our Diagnostic Medical Sonography Program Lab Instructor explains how important it is to experience pathology in lab rather than at externship.
Although students benefit greatly from using ultrasound simulation, we understand that it cannot replace real patient scanning. That is why we’ve integrated ultrasound simulation into our Diagnostic Medical Sonography Program as an added benefit along with live patient scanning and an externship program. This way students are confident in their scanning skills, soft skills, and familiarity with pathology after graduation. Healthcare Career College’s students get to experience this unique curriculum which prepares them for a career as an Ultrasound Technician.
