As an extension of the three week course, the three month curriculum includes additional didactics which include abdominal and gynecologic pathology. During the second and third months, an emphasis is placed on recognition of abnormal processes and collection of pertinent clinical data. Special slide modules and video tape sessions reinforce the student’s knowledge and interpretative ability. Through clinical rotations, the student works with experienced sonographers an d sonologists as he/she begins to evaluate “real life” patients. Due to the variety of rotations available, the student becomes familiar with several types of diagnostic ultrasound units while learning various techniques of departmental operations.
A distance option is available for the Three Month Course. Please refer to the Student Handbook on the right side of the page for more information.
