In announcing the addition of SonoSim technology to the Ultrasound program, HDMC’s Ultrasound Program Director Chelsea Thomson, RDMS, said, “The addition of SonoSim to our students’ education provides a learning experience that surpasses what can traditionally be offered in a lab setting. Students will gain access to pathologies, procedures and case studies to prepare them for what they will encounter in the field. This tool helps take the lab home with them so that they can practice the hands-on application outside of course hours and will help them set themselves apart from others entering the field.”
SonoSim’s innovative, patented technology offers HDMC students the most current, relevant industry training available today. Training to be an ultrasound technician is a popular choice amongst students looking to enter the healthcare field. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects increasing growth in this field as sonography becomes an increasingly attractive alternative to radiological procedures.
