Associate of Science in Diagnostic Medical Sonography Technology
The Diagnostic Medical Sonography Technology Program integrates didactic, laboratory and clinical experiential learning. Sonographers are highly skilled professionals who provide patient services using diagnostic techniques under the supervision of a licensed doctor of medicine or osteopathy. Diagnostic Medical Sonographers perform two-dimensional, Doppler and other sonographic procedures and record data for interpretation by a physician. A degree will be awarded upon successful completion. Outside work required.
The Diagnostic Medical Sonography Technology program at the Miami Lakes Area Branch Campus is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (www.caahep.org) upon the recommendation of the Joint Review Committee on Education in Diagnostic Medical Sonography.
