Description
Diagnostic Medical Sonography, also known as Ultrasound, is a technology involving the application of high-frequency sound waves on patients to aid in medical diagnoses. As part of the patient care team, Diagnostic Medical Sonographers assess patients and provide information to physicians for diagnoses and monitoring patients' health statuses.

The Diagnostic Medical Sonography program prepares students, through theoretical and clinical training, to conduct Ultrasound examinations, focusing on areas such as obstetrics and gynecology, abdomen and superficial structures, and vascular sonographic studies. This content is cross-referenced to the national competency profile set up by Sonography Canada.

This is a specialized profession requiring a high degree of technical skills and hand eye coordination, and exceptional interpersonal skills.

As part of training, students will perform scans on each other therefore all students must be agreeable to participate in scanning procedures.

Sonography Canada administers the Canadian credentials. To be eligible for the Canadian credential, graduates must successfully complete both the Sonography Canada's Canadian Clinical Skills Assessment (CCSA) and the Sonography Canada written exam. All the costs for the Canadian credential are the responsibility of the graduate (approximately $700 CDN).
