“I always knew I wanted to do something within the healthcare field, especially pertaining to imaging. The diagnostic side of imaging within healthcare delivers so many answers for doctors and most importantly for patients. Growing up at the VA, I watched my mom perform X-Rays and MRIs and thus the field had always intrigued me.
I had been attending Capital Community College in Hartford, Connecticut completing general Ed classes to get a feel for what I would want to do. Once I started the cardiovascular ultrasound program here at AIHT I knew right away that this was going to be a perfect fit for me and a career that would project me into a secured future, both financially and mentally.
The program has definitely been a lot to take in and grow with. As with any diagnostic imaging or healthcare related job geared towards identifying pathologies with a person’s body, in this program as well you will need to be well equipped with not only the hands on training but also theory. Overall I am very happy with my instructors that I have come to learn from and encourage anyone who is interested in diagnostic medical imaging to look into ultrasound. ”Jeffrey Remillard, Cardiovascular Technologist (CVT)
“Hello!!! I am a current student of AIHT. I graduated with Masters of Business Administration in Retail Operation in 2011. Prior coming to United States in 2013, I was never interested in healthcare. My Husband encouraged me to pursue a career in healthcare field by showing me the stability and rewarding careers available. Getting on the path of going back to school was very difficult and felt like starting from the beginning all over again.
After researching healthcare programs that were available, I chose to be an Ultrasound technologist. I started school at Gateway Community College and the program there would have taken 3 years to complete. Even though I had been going to GCC for 1 year when I found AIHT in an ad in my community newspaper I reached out right away. When I found that the course is less than 2 years with a steady schedule I decided to inquire in detail and ended up enrolling in the program. At AIHT I am able to complete the program in less than 2 years. This would allow me to get into the work force earlier and start gaining experience.
My experience here at AIHT has been wonderful. I feel as though I am a part of a family that meets 9am-2pm Monday through Friday. I have built great relationships with fellow students and instructors. When I need help and do not understand something someone is always there to take the time to help me understand. The instructors are very knowledgeable and have lots of experience. The AIHT staff goes out of their way to help build student resumes and find externship locations. They also provide extra material and review for the registry as well.
Student life at AIHT as an Ultrasound Technologist day students consist of Monday through Friday 9am-2pm class. It can be a challenge to stay focused in class but you get use to it very quick. It is a fast paced program that requires studying every day.
Upon graduating from the program, I look forward to work as an Ultrasound Technologist. I plan on doing this for a few years and hopefully I will be able to use my MBA in the healthcare industry as well. As an Ultrasound Technologist I will be able to provide my employer with other skills I obtained while getting my MBA. ”Nishma Patel, Diagnostic Medical Sonographer (DMS)
“My name is Angelita Fattibene. I am currently a cardiovascular student at AIHT. I obtained my certified nursing assistant, phlebotomy, and medical assistant certificates from previous schools. I presently work at one of the local hospitals in Fairfield County. I am fortunate to work in the MICU as a patient care technician I have gained so much experience working alongside with excellent healthcare professionals. I enjoy helping people and love my job but I needed a change so I came to AIHT for training and education in the field of Cardiac sonography. I have always been fascinated watching sonographers perform ultrasounds on my patients and my dream is to become a sonographer myself. I want to fulfill my dream and hope that I can contribute back to the community.
I have had a great experience since I enrolled at AIHT. It is very stressful working fulltime, going to school fulltime and I having a toddler at home. Luckily my professors are wonderful and they are always accommodating to my hectic schedule. It has been a difficult journey but I know that this school is doing everything they can to provide me with the proper training and skills that I need to become a professional. I knew this program was going to be challenging but I have to give it my all in order to succeed in pursuing my dreams. Other individuals have done it and so can I.
My advice to any prospective students who is planning on changing careers or even possibly starting a new one in the future, do your research and inquire about what AIHT has to offer you because they may be able to guide you on your journey in the healthcare field. ”Angelita Fattibene, Cardiovascular Technologist (CVT)

AIHT’s staff treat you not only as just another student, but they take the time to get to know you and offer assistance beyond the classroom if needed.
I enjoyed the externship because it provided me with hands on experience towards my field in Medical Assisting.

“I love the instructors and the staff at AIHT Education. They are very good at teaching and care about my education. They helped me so much to complete the Echocardiography program, especially when I was going through a hard time and wanted to quit, they were there for
The lectures I received from them were exceptional, the instructors are very knowledgeable and take the time to go over the lectures. If you were struggling they would stay with you after school and go over the lectures again. I have been to different schools before and compared them with AIHT, they were far beyond inferior to AIHT. The education I received is far beyond excellent. I will always recommend AIHT Education to anyone. Great Job AIHT! ”Garry Sanon, Echocardiography Student

The lectures and clinical example we reccive are very interesting and instructive, and help to reinforce our learning. One of the best things about AIHT Education is that the class sizes are small. This provides for an optimum learning experience, because amaller classes guarantees that our teachers can provide us with individualized attention so that we learn each concept before we move onto the next item of study.

The staff at AIHT Education are all top-notch professionals, in the top echelon of their respective fields.
