Listed below are all of the accredited schools in Maine that offer ultrasound or sonography degree or certificate programs.
Maine’s rocky Atlantic coastline and lush forests make it a great natural retreat. Fishing, skiing and hiking are quite popular with residents and tourists alike. Because of the large number of densely-wooded areas in its interior, lumber is an important part of the Maine economy. Fishing is also a key industry, particularly lobsters and clams. Bordered by Canada to the north and hundreds of miles of coastline to the southeast, much of the state is made up of small fishing villages and beach towns. This makes it perfect for those seeking rural living in a beautiful natural environment.
Ultrasound/Sonography Education in Maine
Maine’s ultrasound technology training offerings are fairly limited. Certificates and associate degrees are the highest levels of training one can pursue in Maine. Radiologic technology and sonography are the focuses of the programs.
Outlook for Ultrasound/Sonography Careers in Maine
The job market for ultrasound technologists in Maine isn’t as strong as it is in most other states. There are more than 1,200 radiologic technologist/technician jobs, while cardiovascular and diagnostic sonography technicians both have approximately 200 openings each (Bureau of Labor Statistics, 2010 data).
