The Diagnostic Medical Sonography (DMS) program prepares the student to function as a medical sonographer. The diagnostic medical sonographer performs sonographic examinations using high frequency sound waves to visualize soft tissue structures, including the gall bladder, kidneys, pregnant uterus and other organs as requested by the physician. For the vast majority of diagnostic procedures, the sonographer has total responsibility for the care and well-being of the patient and must be prepared to produce quality images with care and empathy.
The DMS curriculum provides the core courses, clinical experiences and supportive courses in liberal arts which, upon completion, will qualify graduates for entry-level positions as Diagnostic Medical Sonographers in hospitals, clinics and private medical offices. In addition, graduates of the program receive an Associate in Applied Science (A.A.S.) Degree and are eligible to apply to take the American Registry of Diagnostic Medical Sonographers Examinations (ARDMS).
