About the Associate of Science in Diagnostic Medical Sonography
This field specializes in sound wave imaging techniques that produces computer-simulated displays. Sonographers might work at hospitals, physicians' offices, diagnostic facilities, or travel between practices as a contractor, assisting physicians in completing accurate examinations and providing images to obtain accurate diagnoses and treatment options. Sonographers interact frequently with patients, and are able to be part of a dynamic and ever-changing field.
Each faculty member in the department is a multi-credentialed, seasoned sonographer. Their relative specialties might overlap across numerous subfields, but all faculty members carry their own expertise, sharing their knowledge by instructing our students in their respective fields. Faculty members nurture our students' growth in the classroom, in the lab, and during their clinical rotations.
And the results are clear.
From 2010 to 2013, all students in the sonography program have successfully completed the national registry examination in physics and instrumentation prior to graduation, facilitating their ability to take specialty examinations more quickly upon graduation and become credential sonographers. Many of our graduates gain employment in the Adventist Health System. Strong employer and graduate surveys continually indicate a program providing excellent education for dedicated students.
