Preparing you with hands-on, clinical training to help others

Diagnostic medical sonography is a multi-specialty profession comprising many diverse areas all using ultrasound as a primary technology. Doctors use ultrasound in women, men, and children to gain advanced insights into the inner workings of the body. In fact, after x-ray exams, ultrasound is the most utilized form of diagnostic imaging available today. Sonography uses the high frequency sound waves to obtain images of the human body. These images are used to diagnose disease and guide physicians during invasive procedures. Concordia University's four-year Diagnostic Medical Sonography (DMS) program will train you in anatomy, physiology and the art of scanning. In the first two years you will be taking Concordia core courses and prerequisite classes in preparation for a two-year professional and clinical training program through Henry Ford Hospital, Detroit or Ascension Providence, Southfield.
