Ready to take the next step toward a career in healthcare? With an Associate of Applied Science degree program in Diagnostic Medical Sonography from The College of Health Care Professions, you can be on your way to performing diagnostic scans that assist healthcare providers to diagnose and treat patients.

Diagnostic Medical Sonographers, also known as Ultrasonographers, are vital players in patient care. Ultrasonographers use a transducer to emit sound waves across specific parts of the body. These sound waves echo and reflect back to the transducer to produce images (also known as sonograms) of the body’s interior. Sonograms are used to highlight internal issues that would not be seen otherwise.

With an AAS degree in Diagnostic Medical Sonography from CHCP, you will be taught the skills needed to get a job as a sonographer. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics*, job openings for Diagnostic Medical Sonographers are projected to grow 12 percent through 2029—a much faster than average pace.
