John Knack
John Knack, Ultrasound (BPS), Class of 2015, entered Ultrasound after earning his Radiography degree. "The Medical Imaging program here at Upstate is very relevant to the job market out there. The training you receive in class gives you the confidence you need for the clinical setting. The faculty are very caring. They want to make sure you know the material."
John Knack, Class of 2015
