The Diagnostic Medical Sonography program introduces students to a wide variety of specialties such as cardiac care, OB-GYN, thoracic and musculoskeletal. Students in this program learn alongside other health science students in our state-of-the-art simulation center.
Diagnostic Medical Sonographers, more commonly referred to as ultrasound technicians, work with specialized equipment that uses soundwaves to produce internal anatomical images of the human body. Their work helps to support medical professionals in making accurate diagnoses.
A sonographer is responsible for obtaining patient history, performing the sonographic examination, maintaining patient comfort during the examination, and recording anatomy, pathology or other data for interpretation by the supervising physician.
Graduates of the Diagnostic Medical Sonography program have knowledge of the normal structure and anatomy of the human body and use independent judgment in recognizing the need to perform procedures according to sonographic findings.
Career opportunities include, but aren’t limited to, the following:

High school dual credit provides high school students the opportunity to earn college credit while in high school, without leaving their high school classroom. The courses are taught by certified high school instructors using technical college curriculum, grading policies and textbooks.
Has previous life experience already helped you build knowledge and skills applicable to your studies? Applying previously earned credits to a program of study can save you both time spent in the classroom and money spent on tuition and fees.
Financial Aid is provided to aid eligible associate degree and technical diploma programs with 28 credits or more. Processing can take 4-6 weeks after a student’s completed Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is received.
