LBWCC to begin Vascular Technology program


LBW Community College will offer a new short-term certificate program in vascular technology beginning Jan. 10, 2011.


“We recently received notification of the Alabama Department of Postsecondary Education’s approval of the program,” said Peggy Linton, LBWCC dean of instruction. “This program is appropriate for diagnostic medical sonography graduates and professional sonographers already working in the field.”


Diagnostic medical sonography, or ultrasound, is a technique using high frequency sound to create images of body structures that doctors use to make diagnoses. Vascular technology assesses the anatomy, physiology and pathlogy of the arteries and veins of the body.


“This program allows LBWCC to add another dimension of training for allied health professionals,” said Linton.


The short-term certificate includes three courses for a total of 11 credit hours. Classes will be held on the MacArthur campus in Opp. For more information, call (334) 493-5389.
