Are you interested in a career as a diagnostic medical sonographer?
Students attend classroom sessions and get practical experience in the ultrasound scanning lab and through clinical rotations in area hospitals and other health care facilities. You'll get to use a wide variety of ultrasound equipment in clinical rotations, which include a 300-plus-bed hospital, a 100-to-200-bed hospital, a children's hospital as well as an obstetric and vascular specialty rotation.
“When I attended the program, I knew that I wanted to be in health care but could not have imagined the impact I would be able to have in communities that are typically underserved by ultrasound. I oversee more than 8,000 scans a year while my company serves more than 40 providers. None of this would have been possible without my educational foundation at El Centro College.”
