“I like that we scan live patient models every day – much more actual hands-on experience than other programs offer. We get a lot of hands-on time with instructors during lab and they are always available to help.”

Alex Smith

“The small class size allows for a more individual, hands on experience. The combination of labs, didactics, and clinical experiences is truly preparing me for a career in the field of sonography. I’m proud of what I’ve been able to achieve at the Arizona Heart Foundation School of Cardiac & Vascular Ultrasound.”

Drew Carlyle

I am a retired police sergeant who worked several extremely stressful positions in 27 years.

Additionally, I had both parents die of heart disease. When The Arizona Heart Foundation

partnered with the Tucson Police Department to provide complementary Echocardiograms forfree, I signed up. I had the exam today and I would like to commend the staff and students fortheir professionalism and for them being personable and discrete in doing the exams. They

were prompt and the exam was conducted within the timeline that was announced.

I truly hope that this becomes a yearly thing for our active and retired law enforcement along

with their family members. We know all too well the stress of this job. If this saves one person,

it would be well worth it.

Tammie Penta - Retired TPD Sergeant

The Arizona Heart Foundation and staff are great.  The care they provided was exceptional, while allowing students to be trained for a career in the field.  As a non-profit/school, they provide scans for free to anyone.  I was so satisfied with their care, I personally referred them to Life Time Fitness, since they have the capability to do mobile scans for organizations and/or events.  There is absolutely no reason to find out the hard way if you have a heart condition.  Call them!

The Arizona Heart Foundation is an amazing facility.  To provide real world experience for their students, they utilize real patients who receive scans, normally reserved for those with immediate issues and in the hospital, free of charge.  You will even receive a report to take to your own doctor.  The students and the instructors truly care about their training and care for the patients.  An outstanding facility.

My experience was above my expectations.  Everyone was friendly and professional. The screening was fascinating.

I will strongly consider your organization and help in any way that I can.
