CLIN-3003Introduction to Clinical Practice for Diagnostic Medical Sonography
More Information

This course will give students the opportunity to connect theoretical material with clinical practice through spending time at a Sonography department within a RRC affiliated healthcare facility. Under appropriate supervision, students will begin to apply concepts of diagnostic medical sonography to clinical practice by observing and assisting registered Sonographers perform exams on actual patients while also giving students exposure to other operational aspects of a diagnostic imaging facility.

Prerequisites:
COMM-1173Communication Strategies
More Information

Everyone communicates, but are they doing it well? Communicative competence takes practice and self-awareness. By developing their communication skills, the student will improve their interpersonal ability, intercultural competence, and digital fluency to prepare the student for success in the workplace. In Communication Strategies, the student will learn through discovery and project-based activities to practice approaching situations critically and collaboratively. The strategies the student will gain in this course will be useful throughout their program and in their chosen industry.
