August 22, 2016 — College Choice, a leading authority in college and university rankings and resources, has published its 2016 rankings for the Best Ultrasound Technician Schools.

The full ranking can be seen here: http://www.collegechoice.net/rankings/best-ultrasound-technician-schools/

Ultrasound technicians are highly trained and independent working professionals. Now that the field is growing, they are also required to have higher education.

Christian Amondson, managing editor of College Choice, had this to say about the ranking: "According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, people in management occupations (where many business school grads end up) earned an average of $98,560 in 2015. No other occupational group had a higher average compensation level. Job growth is looking healthy as well – business and financial operations occupations are projected to grow 8 percent from 2014 to 2024."

The Best Ultrasound Technician Schools 2016 ranking from College Choice was first and foremost created by using actual freshman data from the Higher Education Research Institute at the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA). This was used in conjunction with other factors, including academic reputation, tuition costs and graduate employment success rates.

The University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center led the 2016 ranking, followed by the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences and Ohio State University.
