The Diagnostic Medical Sonography Program at Morehead State University is an Area of Concentration in the Imaging Sciences baccalaureate degree program. Sonography is the use of sound waves to generate an image for the assessment and diagnosis of various medical conditions. Sonography is commonly associated with obstetrics and the use of ultrasound imaging during pregnancy, but this technology has many other applications in the diagnosis and treatment of medical conditions throughout the body. Along with lecture courses, the program provides "hands-on" opportunities in state-of-the-art laboratory facilities and during clinical assignments at health care agencies associated with the program. Graduates may be eligible to sit for the American Registry of Diagnostic Medical Sonographers' (ARDMS) national certifying examinations in the areas of sonographic physics and instrumentation, abdomen and obstetrics/gynecology. The program prepares graduates who seek employment in hospitals, imaging centers, and physicians' offices as Diagnostic Medical Sonographers.
The program has a selective admission process and limited enrollment. Students are admitted once a year (April), with classes beginning in the second summer session of each year. The qualified applicant must be a radiographer (registry-eligible or registered with the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists) and have completed all prerequisites prior to entry (see ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS for additional information.)
Following official acceptance, the program consists of 13 months (full-time) of didactic coursework and clinical practice averaging 30 - 36 hours per week. The student will begin courses during Summer II. All classes and labs are scheduled Monday through Thursday from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm, including a lunch break. During the first eight weeks of the spring and fall semesters, the student will attend classes and labs Monday through Thursday and will attend clinicals on Fridays. During the second eight weeks of each fall and spring semester, the student will be assigned to a clinical affiliate on Monday through Friday for 40 hours per week. A third and fourth clinical is required during the summer near the end of the curriculum with the student attending Monday through Friday for 40 hours per week. The total number of class and lab hours in the sonography program is 456, while 1,016 are required for clinical. This may vary slightly each year due to the University's academic calendar.
