Sonographer Salary in Michigan

Sonographers are diagnostic medical professionals using ultrasonic devices to produce diagnostic images/scans, or even videos.  Not everyone is qualified to be one (you would need to obtain a certificate or degree), and when you are a certified professional, you can work in any medical department that would require operating such devices.  It is a good career choice, or even if you are thinking about a career change.  As long as you complete programs accredited by CAAHEP, you can start your new job as a sonographer ASAP.

Based on 2010 Census, Michigan’s population for under 18 ranked 9th, and age over 65 ranked 8th in the U.S.  These age groups represent the ones that need more medical care, thus, it is a good field to enter.  Michigan ranked 5th in unemployment rate in the U.S. as of September, 2011, and even though unemployment rate dropped by 0.1% for Michigan, 11.1% is considerably high.   Whether you are looking for a job,  or if you need a second job skill, sonographer is a good (and relatively easy) career choice.
