The Institute of Ultrasound Diagnostics gave Arron a good fundamental background on which to build his ultrasound career. He returned to our hospital well prepared to work with us toward his becoming an important part of the diagnostic team.
Janis L. McGinnis, B.S., Ultrasound Supervisor Coos Bay, Oregon
Because ultrasound is such a unique modality, training someone strictly on the job would take approximately a year or more. Having the actual classroom knowledge helps so much to understand what you are looking at while scanning. I am sure the degree of Renee’s ability is due to the Institute of Ultrasound Diagnostics and highly recommend their program.
Judy Steele, Operations Manager, Radiology Services Cincinnati, Ohio
Your program has given Robin a well-grounded basic education in ultrasound and also more confidence in approaching different organ systems.
E.V. Bonnard III, M.D. Richland Radiology, Illinois-Indiana Olney, Illinois
Terry’s knowledge of diagnostic ultrasound by far exceeded what was expected in a three-month course.
Dr. Lexsee Nickson, Jr., M.D., P.C. Syrocuse, NY
The personal touch given by the instructors at the Institute of Ultrasound Diagnostics is a definite plus!! The “hands-on” experience is a must for the beginning Sonographer.
Brenda Schwartz. RT., DMS Great Falls, Montana
I know that my experience here will be the strongest base of training for my career as a sonographer. I only hope to live up to the great skills that both Kathy and Misty have shared. I would encourage anyone to attend this program, whether they are just learning or experienced
Christa Winchester. RT. Muncie, Indiana
I attended you program back in 1991. Just recently I graduated from a physician’s assistant program and will begin working as an emergency room PA next month. I wanted to send my regards and to thank you for the wonderful program that you offer. After being in school for the least 2 ½ years, I realize what an outstanding program you have and how much I learned. I paid a lot more money to become a PA and did not get near the education I received at IUD. So, keep up the good work and remember that quality is the best reputation anyone can have.
Nabil Samy Himaya Abdel Messiah, RDMS
Thank You for the help you have given me in building a strong foundation for my new career. For someone that has been through a few career changes before, I am gratified to find one that will be as challenging and rewarding as I want to make it. Your presentation of sonography as a profession instead of a trade makes this possible. At times this process has been frustrating, but it has also been a grand adventure. Your combination of knowledge and compassion for your students provides the tools and encourages the fortitude necessary for success. Thank You, Kathy and Misty. Your hard work is appreciated.
