Description

The Diagnostic Medical Sonography 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.

Objectives

The goal of the program is to prepare competent-entry-level general sonographers in the cognitive (knowledge), psychomotor (skills), and affective (behavior) learning domains.

Admission Requirements

  • Have a High School Diploma or GED
  • Pass the entrance exam
  • Background check and drug screening where applicable
  • Successful completion of all general education courses with a minimum grade of “C” or higher
  • Cumulative grade average of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale in completed general education courses
