Diagnostic Medical Sonography Program

The Diagnostic Medical Sonography program introduces students to a wide variety of specialties such as cardiac care, OB-GYN, thoracic and musculoskeletal.

About the Program

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 bodyTheir work helps to support medical professionals in making accurate diagnoses. 

What You’ll Learn

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. 

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.   

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.
