CURRICULUM GUIDE

 

Diagnostic Medical Sonography

Certificate of Achievement

 

Curriculum Code: 0263  (Effective Fall 2004 - Summer 2005)

 

The certificate option of the D.M.S. program prepares students for examination by the American Registry of Diagnostic Medical Sonographers and is aligned with the standards and guidelines of the Joint Review Commission on Diagnostic Medical Sonography and the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (JRCDMS-CAAHEP.) It is an option only for graduates of an accredited allied health associate degree program including Radiologic Technology, Registered Nursing, Respiratory Therapy, Occupational Therapy, or Physical Therapy. All other students must follow the Associate in Applied Science Degree  curriculum for Diagnostic Medical Sonography and should consult with a D.M.S. program advisor.

 

This is a selective admission program. In order to be considered as a candidate for this program, students must meet basic admission requirements beyond those required for admission to the College.  Many of the courses for this program are open only to students officially admitted to the Diagnostic Medical Sonography Program.
