Sonographers, also called ultrasound technologists, use special imaging equipment that directs sound waves into a patient's body to assess and diagnose various medical conditions. This one-year certificate program gives you the skills to be a competent entry-level general sonographer.

Those entering the program are often graduates of the college's other allied health programs, such as the Radiologic Technology A.A.S. program, but some enter the program with a bachelor's degree and the required prerequisites.

This academic program is primarily designed for those who wish to enter the workforce immediately following graduation.

This program is offered by the Medical Imaging Department.
