Advanced Cardiac Sonographer (ACS) Credentialing Program
The Advanced Cardiac Sonographer (ACS) credentialing program was developed in response to a need to expand a career track for sonographers who practice at an advanced level in the echocardiography laboratory. The ACS is committed to improving lab quality and efficiency through preparing preliminary echo assessments; performing advanced echocardiograms; mentoring fellows, students, residents, and staff; developing and implementing educational plans; facilitating continuous quality improvement; and coordinating cardiac ultrasound research.
For more information about the Advanced Cardiovascular Sonography profession, view the white paper and standards for The Committee on Accreditation for Advanced Cardiovascular Sonography (COA-ACS) at http://www.caahep.org/coa-acs.
