Frequently Asked Questions

What is allied health?

Allied health professions are what they sound like: allies to other healthcare professions. Typically, medical professionals in these fields provide diagnostic, technical, therapeutic, or support services, including but not limited to disorder identification, disease prevention, nutrition, rehabilitation, and many others.

These programs are different from RN, PA, and MD programs, which require more extensive schooling at a higher cost. Allied health programs exist for a wide variety of specialities, from CNAs to EMTs to Ultrasound Techs and beyond. Vitali exists to make it easy for allied health students in select specialties to complete their desired programs and feel confident on their path to a brighter future.

What is the difference between EKG and ECG?

EKG and ECG are different abbreviations for the same term. Both refer to an electrocardiogram, which is a medical test done to record the heart’s activity and condition.

What does an EKG technician do?

Cardiographic or electrocardiogram (EKG) technicians are primarily responsible for EKG testing. They spend most of their time monitoring patients’ hearts, recording and analyzing diagnostic test results, and communicating with patients and supervisors. EKG technicians need to know how to interpret rhythm strips and answer patient questions related to procedures and medications.

Are there any prerequisites for this program?

To register for this program, you must have a high school diploma or GED equivalent. No prior studying is required.
