Essential Information

Students who want to gain the knowledge and skills to perform ultrasound procedures can pursue degree programs in sonography and echocardiography. However, the state of Oregon has limited options when it comes to ultrasound education and training, and only one school in the state offers sonography and echocardiography programs leading to bachelor's degrees. These programs include externships in addition to traditional schooling.

Career Requirements

As of January 1, 2014, sonographers will need to be licensed to work in the state of Oregon and must renew their licenses every two years. In order to gain licensure, sonographers must be credentialed through the American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonography (ARDMS), Cardiovascular Credentialing International (CCI) or the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT). These credentials are obtained by passing an exam.
