CVIU

See our Entrance Requirements and Prerequisites now!

The Cardiac and Vascular Institute of Ultrasound (CVIU) is a fully accredited Ultrasound School dedicated to providing students with an in-depth and highly blog_iconspecialized education in cardiac and vascular ultrasound. We were the first Ultrasound Institute in the United States to separate the two fields—cardiac and vascular—from general diagnostic ultrasound and emphasize specialization rather than generalization. Specialization makes our students more employable. By specializing in either cardiac or vascular ultrasound, you will be more qualified than graduates of General Ultrasound Schools. Small classes, instructors that love teaching, and a curriculum that emphasizes immediate practical application, all make CVIU a fascinating and rewarding place to learn.

This, combined with the real world experience gained in our externship program, makes CVIU one of the best Schools of Ultrasound in the U.S. Currently, CVIU is one of only 13 schools in the U.S. that specializes in only echocardiography and vascular ultrasound.
