Director's Welcome

Dear Prospective Sonography Students,

Thank you for your interest in the Ascension St. Vincent Diagnostic Medical Sonography Program!  

Our program is committed to offering outstanding education and training in sonography. Because our program is sponsored by Ascension St. Vincent hospitals, our students receive instruction by program faculty who are employed by Ascension St. Vincent, which further allows us direct control of the program’s curriculum, clinical and classroom training.

Additionally, our Ascension St. Vincent College of Health Professions, also sponsored by Ascension St. Vincent, allows the Sonography Program to award an Associate of Applied Science degree to program graduates. This makes the Ascension St. Vincent Sonography Program the only hospital-sponsored academic institution in Indiana accredited to award an academic degree. In short, our students benefit significantly in many ways from Ascension St. Vincent hospitals sponsoring the Sonography Program.

Our goal is to serve as a model for hospital-based allied health education and training, and we are looking for individuals that are called to serve and learn in our hospital communities. Of course, our Sonography Program is not easy. The program is full-time and 24-months in length. Our curriculum is rigorous, and our academic expectations are high. We are candid in telling prospective students that our program is challenging and labor-intensive. But the purpose of having high standards is to benefit our students, and ultimately our patients who put their trust in us every day as medical imaging professionals. If you are up to meeting this challenge, then we welcome your application for the next enrollment period!

Please let us know if you have any questions. We kindly request that you navigate the website fully by clicking on all of the different tabs prior to reaching out with questions.  We hope to hear from you soon.
