Hi all, I live in the Houston area and am considering Ultrasound Diagnostic School. They have a 20-
month program. I know they are not accredited, but they are the only school within driving distance,
the only other one is 1 hour away. Any graduates from this school? I look to work in a private
ob/gyn office.

I don't know details, but if a school isn't accredited, what exactly do you expect to gain by
attending it?

David is wright on this. I would try to talk to some local OBs or perhaps the HR department at a
local hospital. Often, I think they would be willing to take some time and discuss this sort of
thing people trying to get going in a health-care career.

Plus, hospitals sometimes are willing to hire people and send them to school.

BTW, for a good education, 1 hour away *IS* within driving distance.

Jenn,

Getting any sort of training from an un-accredited school is the same as ordering a degree via the
internet. IOW, it is worth about as much as a Confederate dollar bill. Many employers look for stuff
like that and automatically disqualify you as a candiate if they see un-accredited schools on your
resume/job application.

University of Phoenix?

How could they even call these schools (U of P and National University) UNIVERSITY is beyond me.
