For the past 25 years, UCSD School of Medicine has offered initial mammography training for technologists and trained thousands of technologists from around the world. Louise Miller, Director of Education for Mammography Educators, served as Director and Co-Director for the Practicum from its inception. Louise retired from UCSD in September of 2013, and made the decision not to go forward with the Practicum.
As Mammography Educators recognizes the need for quality initial training in mammography, they continue to offer the same program, a Mammography Training Course, for technologists who need and want the best in initial mammography education.
We are proud that we retained most of the faculty from the UCSD program. Additionally, we offer a separate Mammography Clinical Training Program to complete your required 25 mammograms under supervision.
