The primary purpose of UltrasoundSchoolsInfo.com is to provide education and career information, and to help connect prospective students with colleges and universities that meet their learning goals.
Below you will find additional information about this website, including our sponsored school ads. Please keep in mind that we do not offer our own training or degree program, nor does USI suggest or promote one school’s degree program over another.
Affiliate or Sponsored Links
As you will notice on many of our pages, we provide an access point for you to request information from colleges and universities that offer undergraduate and/or graduate degrees, certificate and other educational programs.
Some of the schools on our site pay us when you click on their website or request information from them. These schools are denoted by the phrase “Matching Schools”, “Sponsored Schools”, or similar notation above or below the listing.
Other schools, such as those found on our State pages, are provided as a courtesy and they do not pay us to be on our site. These are denoted under the title “Accredited Ultrasound Technician Schools in (name of state)”. Ultrasound Schools Info does not recommend or endorse any particular school or program.
Our websites do not provide, nor are they intended to provide, a comprehensive list of all schools (a) in the United States (b) located in a specific geographic area or (c) that offer a particular program of study. By providing information or agreeing to be contacted by a Sponsored School, you are in no way obligated to apply to or enroll with the school.
This is an offer for educational opportunities that may lead to employment and not an offer for nor a guarantee of employment. Students should consult with a representative from the school they select to learn more about career opportunities in that field. Program outcomes vary according to each institution’s specific program curriculum.
Research & Planning
We encourage all users to thoroughly research any school they are planning on attending. Tuition, accreditation, graduation rates, employment rates, and career assistance should all be considered before committing to an educational institution.
All schools have a series of actions and results that they are required to post under the U.S. Department of Education’s Student Right-to-Know Act. It is the responsibility of each individual to ensure that they are making a well informed decision.
Additionally, the U.S. Department of Education provides employment information related to program cost, success, and financing. The following link powered by College Scorecard Data covers these topics in great detail.

General Contact Information
Why can I access your services free of charge?
We’ve built a relationship with the schools we profile, or via the agencies they have authorized to represent them. They pay us to be featured on our website, knowing that we are committed to providing individuals who are interested in researching relevant educational programs and professions. This relationship with these colleges and universities allows us to provide comprehensive degree and career information to you free of charge.
Do you provide information on all sonography schools?
No, though we do try and offer information on a wide range of online and campus schools, both large and small, across the country. Concentrations and majors range from diagnostic medical sonography to medical assisting, healthcare management, and more.
Is it worth it for me to complete a sonography or healthcare degree, and does it guarantee a career?
It is important for us to let you know that completing a degree in any field does not guarantee employment in the career you are initially striving towards, or any career for that matter. However like any success in life, starting a career takes commitment and persistence so you are able to overcome barriers, such as low employment rates and competition.
If and when I do successfully start a medical sonography or healthcare, what kind of salary will I earn?
There is no salary guarantee; the money you earn can vary greatly by degree, the school you attended, your geographic location, and who you work for, among other factors.
When we provide salary statistics, they always come from either the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), or Career OneStop. The BLS is a reputable source that provides salary information across the country. The BLS also presents data on employment levels and projections. Visiting their website (www.bls.gov) you can look up salary information by major occupation group as well as for each individual career.
Career OneStop is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Labor, and provides salary statistics and tools for researching and advancing a career.
How are you different from similar websites?
We pride ourselves on not only providing a forum to easily access information from individual colleges and universities, and not limiting our content to basic career and degree information (although this is an important component of our website).
We also delve deeper, striving to put ourselves in your shoes. This means our pages, articles and interviews also explore what it is genuinely like to work in a particular occupation, as well as social, economic, historical and even philosophical themes tied to completing these degrees and pursuing these types of careers.
We are open to hearing your ideas and questions which can form the basis of future content for our website.
Our site is free to use, does not require that you provide personal information or membership for use, and there is no commitment required. We hope that you will find it useful.
