Ascension St. Vincent Diagnostic Medical Sonography Program is a two-year, full-time program. The College is institutionally accredited by the Accrediting Bureau of Health Educations Schools (ABHES) and is programmatically accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP) under the recommendation of Joint Review Committee for Diagnostic Medical Sonography Programs (JRC-DMS) in the areas of Abdominal-Extended, Obstetrics and Gynecology and Vascular Sonography. Individuals interested in the program must submit an application to be considered for acceptance into the program. Applications are accepted only from November through January of each year. Classes will begin in June with graduation occurring 24 months later in May. Since the program has limited student capacity, selection into the program is competitive. Not every applicant who applies to the program will be selected. To learn more about the selection process, see Application Process.
The program's curriculum will consist of both intensive classroom education and hands-on clinical training. Enrolled students will be engaged in clinical or classroom activities on-site five days per week. All classroom education and clinical training will be conducted within the Ascension St. Vincent system.
