NHTI’s 16-month Diagnostic Medical Sonography certificate program provides you with the knowledge and clinical skills to function as a diagnostic medical sonographer. The program is designed for students who have completed an AMA Allied Health associate degree or a bachelor’s program with a science or health major. Graduates provide exceptional patient care while using sophisticated ultrasound instrumentation to perform medical imaging procedures, which assist physicians in diagnosing medical conditions.
NHTI’s intensive program requires four semesters of full-time study of ultrasound specialties such as abdomen, small parts, obstetrics, and gynecology, plus an introduction to vascular sonography. Our small class and lab sizes provide extensive, supervised, hands-on practice. This program is financial aid-eligible.
The NHTI Diagnostic Medical Sonography program aims to:
- Prepare competent entry-level abdominal, obstetric, and gynecologic sonographers in the cognitive (knowledge), psychomotor (skills), and affective (behavior) learning domains.
- Prepare students to function in a diverse healthcare environment.
- Promote safe practices, independent life-long learning, and professional contribution.
- Provide students with the skills and attributes necessary to obtain employment and professional registration through the American Registry of Diagnostic Medical Sonographer.
