What is Diagnostic Medical Sonography?

The goal of the Diagnostic Medical Sonography Program is to prepare competent, entry-level sonographers in the cognitive (knowledge), psychomotor (skills), and affective (behavior) learning domains for the following concentration(s): Abdominal, Obstetrics and Gynecology and Vascular sonography. To fulfill this mission, the program strives to provide excellence in teaching and learning, promoting student success, and supporting economic development. This goal coincides with the colleges goals as well as Kentucky Community and Technical College Systems goals.

Upon completion of the program, students must pass the American Registry of Diagnostic Medical Sonographers exam to become certified. CPR certification at healthcare provider level, proof of immunizations, background checks, and drug screens are required after a student is admitted and prior to starting the first semester of the program.
