1DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH SCIENCEThe Department of Health Science offers the workinghealth professional distance online learn ing at thebachelor's, master's, and doctoral (D.H.Sc. and PhD.)degree levels. T he Department of Health Science master'sdegree program also includes two on-campus specializations(anesthesiologist assistant and vascular sonography), aswell as the cardiovascular sonography specialization atNSU 's Tampa Student Educational Center.Diagnostic Medical SonographyDiagnostic medical sonography includes three primaryareas of special izat io n: general, cardiac, and vascular.General sonography includes subspecialties for obstetricsand gynecology exams, exams of the soft tissues and organsof the body, and exams of structures such as joints andte ndons. Cardiac sonography examines the anatomicalstructure and fu nct ion of the heart. Vascular sonographystud ies the anatomical and physiological characteristicsof all arteries and veins in the body. All diagnosticmed ical sonography uses ultrasound to obtain imagesand is, therefore, considered noninvasive, having noknown risks or side effects in comparison to other widelyused medical imaging methods.Cardiac Sonography (Echocardiography)Card iac sonographers are more commonly called echocard iographers or echo-techs. Echocardiography obtainsimages of the heart via ultrasound. It is one of the mostwidely used imaging examinatio ns for assistance in thediagnosis of heart disease. Echocardiography is especiallyuseful for assessing diseases that affect the heart valvesand for detecting abnormalities in the motion andappearance of the heart wall.Vascular SonographyVascular sonographers use ultrasound imaging and othertypes of exams to detect anatomical and physiologicalchanges caused by diseases of the arteries and veins andthe resulting effects on organs and other tissues. Vascu lardisorders include carotid artery disease, which may lead tostroke; abdominal vascular diseases, such as aneurysms;peripheral arterial disease, which can result in chronic painand may progress to loss of limbs; and venous conditionsthat can cause blood clots (thromboses), which can travelto the lungs (pulmonary embolism).Cardiovascular Sonography ProgramThe NSU Cardiovascular Sonography Program inTampa offers didactic and clinical training in two ofthese specialties, cardiac sonography (adult) and vascularsonography, as an integrated curriculum. Additionalcourse content introduces the student to pediatric cardiacsonography and basic concepts in electrophysiologicalcardiology. Because of strong interrelationships betweencardiac and vascular diseases, the need was seen for acomprehensive program covering both specialties. Also,some cardiology departments and other imaging providersmay prefer that sonographers obtain training and professional registry in both cardiac sonography and vascularsonography for purposes of diagnostic exped iency andprofeSSional flexibility.Bachelor of HeaHh Science-Cardiovascular Sonography(B.H.Sc.-CVS)This specialty program is designed to prepare srudentsfor entry-level positions in the field of cardiovasculartechnology. Students take online courses at the undergraduate level, as well as attend on-campus lecturesintegrated with hands-on training in the ultrasound lab.This prepares them for the 12-month clinical externshipduring their second year. Upon graduation, the B.H.Sc.CVS student will be eligible to apply for ad mission to theonline Master of Hea lth Science (M.H.Sc.) program.Master of Health Science-Cardiovascular Sonography(M.H.Sc.-CVS)This specialty program is also designed ro prepare studentsfor entry-level positions in the field of cardiovascular technology, but is for those who already hold bachelor's degrees.Students take a series of online courses at the graduate level,as well as attend on-campus lectures integrated with handson training in the ul trasound lab. This prepares them for the12- month clinical externship during their second year. TheM.H.Sc.-CVS student also takes electives/directed studiesand complete an internship and practicum monitored by afacu lty member to satisfy master's degree- level requirements.Upon graduation, M.H .Sc.-CVS students will be eligibleto apply for admission to the online Doctor of HealthScience (O.H.Sc.) program.5

Examples of generalbe include subj ects such as Writing for MedicalPublication, Epidemiology, Biostatistics, and Principlesand Practice of Management in Health Care. Examplesof cardiovascular sonography courses include UltrasoundPhysics, Cardiac U ltrasound, and Carotid Artery Duplex.While on campus, the student will spend more than 300hours in the training laboratory learning imaging skillsand techniques and physiologic testing methods prior tothe clinical externship experience.In the second year, the student will complete a more than1,800-hour clinical training program whi le continuing totake online courses. The student may have the option toperform his or her clinical externship in a vascular, adultecho, or combined vascular/echo clinical experience,based upon his or her interests and demonstrated competencies. Upon grad uation , the student will be eligible tosit for profeSSional registry exams based upon completionof program and clinical requirements. In addit ion to theregular curriculum, the Master of Health Science studentwill work with a facu lty member to design and implementa project (e.g., cl inica l research ) to satisfy his or herinternship and practicum course requirements. Master'sdegree students will also have additional directed studyand e lective courses during theif clinical tra ining.Prospective cardiovascular sonography students areselected by the Committee on Admissions (COA),6
