Saint Mary's University is offering two new majors in collaboration with the Mayo School of Health Sciences.
Beginning as early as this fall, Saint Mary's students can pursue majors in Radiography and Echocardiography. Radiography is a highly sophisticated medical technology using x-rays, and echocardiography involves sonography of the heart.
Both programs are designed so that students study two years at Saint Mary's and then finish their degrees after studying two years at Mayo Clinic in Rochester.
Saint Mary's is the only private college in Minnesota to partner with Mayo in these programs. Saint Mary's also has affiliated programs with Mayo including Nuclear Medicine Technology, Cytotechnology, and Medical Laboratory Science.
