Sonographer training at Mayo Clinic

If you have a passion for helping people, an eye for detail and a love for anatomy, the Sonography Program offers one of the best sonographer training options in the area.

You can expect:

  • A unique curriculum where you’ll put what you learn in the classroom to practice right away in clinical experiences and scanning labs
  • Training opportunities in all three specialties of abdominal, OB/GYN and vascular sonography
  • To start working with patients after just five weeks, ensuring you’re completely comfortable with patients and fully prepared when you start your career

The program is offered in both Rochester, Minnesota, and Jacksonville, Florida. Lectures originate primarily from the Rochester campus and are made available to students in Florida using interactive video-enabled classrooms. All simulation labs and clinical rotations take place at your home campus.

We'll train you in hopes you’ll join us as a Mayo Clinic employee upon graduation, but we know you’ll be fully prepared for your first day on the job, wherever that may be.
