I am also interested in a career in sonography. I want to know what the job outlook and wages are, what the job usually includes, and if these technicians are respected individuals is the medical field. Lastly, I want to know if there is any room for promotions in this field. Does a/o know s/o that is a sonographer??? Please fill me in as much as u can!!!!

Thanks! I know I can count on you!

Ultrasound technicians are indeed respected in the medical field. They make usually $42000ish at entry level, and the highest of the high is about $70G.

How much oyu make depends upon what type of ultrasound xpertise you have.

1) The best is if you know both cardio and general sonography.

2) Next best is just cardio, or equally as good is if you are excellent at ob-gym sonograms. And by that I mean you can do "high risk" patients.

3) The next level is just general untrasound.

The best places to learn are, in the following order:

1) Downstate
2) NYU
3) UDS
4) Institute of Allied Medical Professions

Mod-

Thank you for your response. It was really helpful. What u're doing on this site is amazing!!!!! P.S.- Does a/o know ppl that have started out as Sonography Tech's and ended up with Administrative duties- such as heading a sonography dept? If not, does a/o know if that would at all be possible?
Please let me know!

Hi,
anyone have any idea whatsover how a chareidi girl living in Israel can learn to be an ultrasound technician post high school? It needs to be a chareidi place that accepts chutzim as opposed to bagruyot. I assume some kind of machon or s/thing. I'd really appreciate even the smallest crumb of information...all my research has not turned up much. But I really want to do it.
Thanks so much!
