Department of Diagnostic Medical Sonography
Sonography (DMS) uses high frequency sound waves (ultrasound) to produce a dynamic visual image of internal organs, tissues, or blood flow inside the body. It is a mode of non-invasive imaging that is widely used in medical practice. The DMS program is a Bachelor of Science program that builds skills in diagnostic imaging upon a strong liberal arts base. Students spend their first two years in the core courses of liberal arts and sciences with additional requirements in anatomy, physiology and physics, which are essential for this allied health profession. Students enter the professional phase of their education at the beginning of their third full time academic year. During the professional phase, the curriculum sequences didactic education, scanning laboratory experience in DMS with extensive clinical (hands-on) experience. Upon completion of the program, students will be eligible to take the American Registry of Diagnostic Medical Sonography (ARDMS) examination in three different concentrations (abdominal, obstetrics and gynecology and echocardiology [adult heart]) and will have access to clinic-based careers in diagnostic medical sonography in multiple specialties.
Admission to the DMS Program
Students will be admitted to the liberal arts and sciences core through the identical admissions process and with the same requirements as the institution.
During the fall of the sophomore year (after 45 credits) students will apply to the DMS professional program. All candidates must submit the following:
- A DMS Program Application form, including a personal statement
- Official transcripts of all undergraduate coursework
There will be one admission cycle per year.
