New! ULTRA P.A.S.S. Registry Review: Vascular Ultrasound Technology Flashcards and Audio CDs

Prepare for your boards with Gulfcoast's "Preparation Agenda for Study Success" tools!

The ULTRA Registry Review Flashcards, containing 390 questions, provide a method of final testing to determine the areas of weakness that may require further study, while at the same time reinforcing the material with which you are already comfortable. These flashcards also contain two audio CDs which narrate continuous questions and answers to further reinforce the study process

General Course Objectives

Upon completion of this program the participant should be able to:
  • 1. Identify areas that require further study
