University of Louisville Physicians, Division of Pediatric Cardiology, is looking for echo techs to join our team. We have well-established outreach clinics in Kentucky where our echo techs work closely with our pediatric cardiologists, performing diagnostic cardiac ultrasound on patients during office visits. We are currently looking for two echo techs to fill PRN positions working 2 to 3 days per month at one or more of our outreach clinics, with the opportunity for additional days covering vacations, etc. and the possibility of a larger role with our team in the future.
The Pediatric Cardiology travel team offers rotating clinics in several rural Kentucky communities that otherwise would not have access to specialized care. The team meets at the Downtown Louisville location in the morning and travels together in a company vehicle to the designated clinics. Overnight trips occur once or twice a week depending on the distance traveled. All accommodations are provided.
Performs a variety of cardiac ultrasound procedures at a technical level that does not require direct supervision. Performs exams as requested by ordering physicians and under the guidelines set by the standards of the Diagnostic Imaging Department. The Pediatric Echo Tech determines and documents the presence, location and severity or absence of cardiac disease. Provides a quantitative comparison for evaluation of the stability, improvement, and deterioration of cardiac disease
