Clinical Resources

Our maximum student enrollment is in proportion with the volume and variety of sonographic procedures, equipment, and personnel available for educational purposes. The number of students assigned to a clinical affiliate/clinical education center will be determined by the following:

• Student/clinical staff ratio not greater than one-to-one
• Student/work station ratio of not greater than one-to-one

Eastern Florida State College will provide students with a variety of care settings in which sonographic and or other diagnostic procedures are performed on in-patients and outpatients. These settings will include the following:
• Ambulatory care facilities
• Emergency/trauma
• Intensive/critical/coronary care
• Surgery
• Angiography/cardiac catheterization

Each Vascular Sonography affiliate or clinical education center shall perform approximately 1500 completed patient examinations, including production of permanent records and reports, per year, per student equivalent.

The overall volume of procedures in which students participate throughout the program will include a minimum of 30% peripheral Arterial vascular system procedures, a minimum of 30% peripheral venous vascular system procedures and a minimum of 30% Extra-Cranial Arterial vascular system procedures.
