AMERICATION CAREER AND TRAINING SCHOOL.

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

The Diagnostic Medical Sonography Program provides an opportunity for students to be educated and trained in a healthcare career. The objective of the program is to graduate students who are competent and confident in providing excellent patient care in the field of Sonography. The student will be qualified for gainful ultrasound employment in a hospital setting with scanning skills based upon the knowledge of human anatomy and disease and perform those skills within accepted practice of standards. Students in the program will be evaluated on affective and psychomotor domains, communication skills, patient care and critical thinking ability. Students will practice ultrasound scanning with the advanced equipment in the lab. Those skills will be carried out and enhanced in an affiliated medical center by training on the job scanning patients. The Diagnostic Medical Sonography Program prepares the student to work in an ultrasound department in a medical center performing abdomen, superficial structures, gynecology and obstetrics exams under the supervision of physicians, to utilize medical ultrasound techniques to gather sonographic data used to diagnose a variety of conditions and diseases to include but not limited to the abdomen, pelvis, pregnant female pelvis, small parts and superficial structures and segments of the vascular system. The student will understand the anatomy, physiology, and pathophysiology of organ systems that are scanned, recognize the sonographic patterns of organs, and learn the protocols for a thorough survey of the organs to provide accurate and technical impressions to the interpreting physician.

At succesful completion of the program the student will be awarded with a Certificate of Completion.
