About the Vascular Ultrasound Program
The program integrates basic medical science with vascular ultrasound diagnostic courses and a general education core. Our degree completion program offers you continuing education in your profession, advancement or new options in your career, and the bachelor's degree required for entry into graduate programs. Many of our students go on to advanced degrees in business, education and more.
You begin the program with a foundation for degree completion built upon two sources: credit you completed at another college and transfer to Oregon Tech and credit granted for professional registries. For example, 84 credits, 44% of the degree, is granted for your RVT or RVS credentials.
Once you are admitted to the program, our staff will conduct a transfer evaluation of your prior coursework to see which classes are applicable toward your bachelor’s degree. After the evaluation is complete, we will send you an advising guide showing your transfer credits, registry credits, and future classes needed for completion. You can view the curriculum, including courses granted for registry, under Curriculum.
