PHOENIX, ARIZ. (April 20, 2010) – The Sanford-Brown College (SBC) Phoenix campus announces the launch of its specialized associate degree program in diagnostic medical sonography, which will be offered during day and night sessions and can be completed in as little as 70 weeks. SBC – Phoenix has also launched a medical billing and coding program, which will be offered during day and night sessions and can be completed in as little as 55 weeks.
Currently, the campus also offers a medical assistant program in both English and Spanish, as well as a pharmacy technician program and a cardiovascular sonography associate degree program.
Sanford-Brown is also introducing the Simpro Virtual Trainer™ in Phoenix and at its campuses nationwide that offer imaging programs in cardiovascular sonography and diagnostic medical sonography. Sanford-Brown partnered with New Zealand-based SIMTICS, a leader in virtual simulation technology for healthcare education, and co-developed this product to improve learning outcomes and help students confidently meet the high standards of the healthcare industry.
"We intend for the Simpro Virtual Trainer to enhance and complement existing, proven training methods inside the classroom and at clinical sites in our cardiovascular sonography and diagnostic medical sonography programs," said George Fitzpatrick, president of the Phoenix campus.
The Simpro Virtual Trainer breaks down each clinical procedure into its component steps, requiring students to make decisions about what to do next, which instrument to use and where to apply it. It will make procedures more accessible, helping students gain and retain critical information without being solely dependent on patient cases during their clinical experience.
