Our mission is to provide a quality entry-level educational program in diagnostic medical sonography and continuing education courses in an environment that is conducive to learning. To prepare the student for an environment of a changing health care system.
Working as a full time Radiology Tech along with having a PRN job as well, SMAHE made it possible for me to continue my education and to follow my dream of becoming a sonographer. The program offered and excellent education, and I was able to keep my full time job and work around to get my clinical hours. Joe was very eager to help me with any questions I had about the program, and he really strived to help me make my dream come true. I would highly recommend this program!

"I enrolled in SMAHE in 2000. Joe was and is an excellent instructor. He is so knowledgeable and patient! I worked part time as a Radiologic Technologist during this 18 month program. Over the last 20 years I have asked Joe questions to help me in my career, he is always so kind in helping me! I have made a career out fo sonography and enrolling in SMAHE was the best decision I've ever made! Joe makes this program obtainable to anyone who is motivated and dedicated in learning ultrasound. I highly recommend this program!"
Amy Stockman, RT(R)(M), RDMS, RVT
The flexibility of this program was extremely helpful to me. As a newly wed I needed work but also wanted to become a sonographer. This program allowed me to do both. I was able to get a job right out of the program and feel like I was adequately prepared for the work force. Joe went above and beyond to help me throughout the program. I would highly recommend SMAHE.

"As a working mother of three and no local ultrasound programs, becoming a sonographer seemed impossible until I found SMAHE. SMAHE provided a quality education while also allowing me to work around my already busy schedule. The classes were like being in a classroom without ever having to leave the house. Between the classes and clinical experience I was well prepared to sit for the registries and to begin working after graduation. I became registered by ARDMS and obtained a full time job at a reputable hospital shortly after completing the program. SMAHE was definitely a smart choice for me."
- Heather Woods, RDMS
"Learning ultrasound was a second career for me. Since there was not a school nearby, the online option with SMAHE was invaluable. The instructor was professional, patient and helpful. I passed all four of the registries I took on my first attempt and obtained a job at an acute care hospital within a few months of graduation. I highly recommend SMAHE."
- Mike Fellman, RDMS, RVT
"I really loved the flexibility that this online program offered, allowing me to work and get my clinical time in. I greatly appreciate Joe's availability to help answer questions I had or explain subject that were difficult one on one. The content of the program was incredibly informative and instructed by Joe in a way that stuck with me as I passed two of my registries the first time I sat for them and had a sonography job before I even graduated the program!"

2014 Vascular Program Graduate
I'm a full time Radiologic Technologist that wanted to cross train into sonography. SMAHE was exactly what I needed. When we become responsible adults, it's hard to drop everything and go back to school. SMAHE made going back to school possible with lectures and assignments I could complete on a schedule that worked for me. Joe was always available, very helpful and easy to talk to. The program gave me everything I needed and the confidence to pass my registries.

2018 Diagnostic Medical Sonography Program Graduate
I am currently employed as a full time Sonographer. I feel SMAHE more than prepared me for my current position. SMAHE allowed me to persue my dreams of specializing in sonography. I not only felt prepared, but I was even able to take the Registered vascular specialist exam, offered by CCI, prior to graduating! Completing the registry early made me more marketable to employers. I would highly recommend the SMAHE program to anyone considering sonography as a career.
