Hybrid Diagnostic Medical Sonography Admission Criteria

Please note that meeting the minimum requirements described below—including conducting an interview with the program chairperson—does not guarantee acceptance into the Hybrid Diagnostic Medical Sonography diploma program. Due to limited capacity, only a select number of students can be accepted.

We suggest all DMS applicants spend at least one day of observation in an ultrasound (sonography) department at a local hospital or other clinical facility shadowing a sonographer for the purpose of learning about the field and the day-to-day responsibilities of a sonographer.

All components of the approval process are considered in making the decision to accept a Hybrid Diagnostic Medical Sonography student. The ability to identify student applicants who have strong critical thinking skills and the desire to apply those skills is an essential component in the decision making process. For additional admission criteria, please see the Admissions section in the School Catalog.
