Diagnostic Medical Sonography (Ultrasound)
Certificate and Degree Options
Associate's Degree Program
Upon completion of the 79 credits of the core sonography classes and degree support courses, students are awarded an Associate in Applied Science degree. At that time, graduates need to complete twelve months of clinical training in order to sit for the American Registry of Diagnostic Sonography boards. Upon the sonography program achieving accreditation, graduates will be able to sit for the ARDMS, or ARRT Sonography boards following graduating the program.
Any applicant who has been convicted of a felony must pre-apply to ARRT or ARDMS to determine eligibility to apply for the national certification examination.
Transferring to Other Schools
Those interested in transferring to a four-year school to complete a bachelor's degree in sonographic technology should work with a Lake Michigan College counselor or academic advisor to ensure that courses will transfer to the school of choice.
The Diagnostic Medical Sonography program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (www.caahep.org) upon the recommendation of Joint Review Committee for Diagnostic Medical Sonography.
