My occupation is computer engneering however; I have had a significant number of interactions with sonographers for medical reasons. Having discussed their journey to becoming a sonographer; most indicate it is an intense program but reasonable in terms of the complexity to get there. My first piece of advice is; only take this path if you have an interest in anatomy; if you ar OK working alone with a patient for 45-120m studies. Based on a 1-10 scale of difficulty, my interactions w/sonographers would suggest a 6 or 7 (10 being most difficult). Lastly, If your interests in anatomy and helping people w/medical conditions is genuine; I strongly encourage you to pursue this field. You are working with many medical professionals in a very clean and safe environment with very high job security as well as opportunities to branch out in your field. I will you all the best.

You may even try contacting an OBGYN to speak with someone who does this for a living or have your guidance counselor connect you with a student in the program to get a sense on what it is like.
