Diagnostic Medical Sonography is an allied health specialty utilizing high frequency sound waves to aid in the diagnosis of disease. Sonographers are important members of the diagnostic imaging team. The sonographer works independently to obtain appropriate images of anatomy and pathology and conveys this information to physicians to assist in the care and treatment of patients.

The Diagnostic Medical Sonography program is designed to provide the necessary education through academic instruction and professional training to develop advanced medical imaging skills and prepare the graduate for employment in the field of sonography. Applicants with prior associate in applied science degrees in radiography, respiratory care, nuclear medicine and/or nursing are eligible for a certificate or degree. A class is admitted each fall. Applicants are encouraged but not required to complete as many non-sonography courses as possible prior to entering the program. Accepted students must take all sonography courses in sequential order and must pass all required courses with a minimum grade of “C”.

Special Admission Requirements: The Midland College Diagnostic Medical Sonography program has a limited enrollment based on specific admission criteria. For information regarding the admission criteria call the Health Sciences Division office. Each prospective student will be counseled by sonography program faculty as scheduled through the Health Sciences office. Current immunizations are required prior to beginning sonography courses. Health insurance is required. Students must be certified in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).
