Diagnostic Medical Sonography

Provide patient care using ultrasound technology

What You'll Learn

Set the foundation for your career in sonography through a unique mix of clinical and classroom instruction. Ivy Tech’s Diagnostic Medical Sonography (DMS) program gives students hands-on learning experience in sonography, with available concentrations in general (abdomen extended and obstetrics/gynecology) vascular, or adult cardiac. In addition to classroom time, students get real-world extensive clinical experience in patient care facilities such as hospitals and clinics.

Coursework covers patient care, medical ethics, exam techniques (including positioning & ergonomics), sonography principles in physics, patient safety and bioeffects, ultrasound anatomy, and pathophysiologic effects.

Here is what students experience in the program:

  • Interpret medical reports and orders as well as write impressions of exams.
  • Learn patient care methods.
  • Develop spatial orientation in relation to understanding patient anatomy.
  • Develop scanning skills and practice sonography techniques in the lab and in the clinical setting.
  • Develop an understanding of physiology, pathology, and pathophysiology.
  • Gain an understanding of acoustic physics, Doppler ultrasound principles, and ultrasound instrumentation.
  • Understand ultrasound interactions with tissue and the potential for bioeffects related to the use of diagnostic ultrasound imaging.
  • Acquire knowledge of professional standards and ethics.
  • Become familiar with the importance of industry standards, research, technological developments, professional organizations, and the discipline of life-long learning.
  • Become competent in diagnostic ultrasound procedures.

Career Options

Sonographers utilize ultrasound imaging to produce patient exams for physicians to use in the evaluation and diagnostic process. This involves preparation, exam explanation and performance, and relaying exam impressions to the physician.

Sonographers work with patients through both joyful and difficult life moments and must maintain strong coping skills in order to be successful. 

Ivy Tech provides graduates with a firm foundation of knowledge and practical experience to gain employment as an entry-level sonographer.

Program Details

Is Diagnostic Medical Sonography Right for Me?

Diagnostic Medical Sonography (DMS) professionals work in hospitals, clinics, and medical offices. Sonographers use knowledge of the profession, industry standards and patient care skills, as well as problem-solving and critical thinking in a typical workday.

The sonography profession is continually changing and requires a desire for life-long learning to maintain knowledge. The registered sonographer is also required to earn continuing medical education credits by their credentialing body to maintain any earned credentials.

Working in healthcare requires emotional maturity, as outcomes are not guaranteed to be always positive. However, a sonography career can be incredibly rewarding and fulfilling for individuals who desire to serve others.

Careers in DMS often require: 

  • Initiative
  • Detail orientation
  • Continual desire to learn 
  • Desire to serve others
  • Critical thinking and problem-solving skills
  • Emotional maturity and strong coping skills
  • Ability to perform sonography essential functions
  • Professionalism
  • Adherence to a code of ethics

Step 1

Apply to Ivy Tech

Students interested in the Diagnostic Medical Sonography (DMS) program must first submit the Ivy Tech general application and complete requirements for admission to the college. During this application, you should apply for the Healthcare Specialist program with a concentration in Diagnostic Medical Sonography. Admission to Ivy Tech does not ensure acceptance to a health science program, but students can work on prerequisite courses for the DMS program after admission to the college and before applying to the program itself.

Apply to Ivy Tech

Step 2

Apply to the Diagnostic Medical Sonography Program

Following completion of prerequisite courses, you may apply for the DMS program through the online application for health science programs. Students must have a GPA of 2.5 out of a 4.0 scale at the end of the spring semester in order to be accepted.

Students must also take the Ultrasound Student Assessment (USA) Exam as part of the application. The USA exam evaluates for intrinsic abilities that are essential to the profession of sonography. The exam cannot be studied for as it is an assessment of foundational sonographic qualities. See the table below for testing and application deadlines. Learn more about the USA Exam

Please note that the DMS program is a selective admission program, which means there are a limited number of spots each year.

Frequently Asked Questions

To learn more about the Health Sciences and Nursing application process, watch the below video, read the FAQ, or contact your campus of interest. 

Offers of Admission

Students can select up to three programs and three campuses on the application. Offers of acceptance are for a specific credential and a specific campus. The offers are determined through eight rounds of auto-selection and six rounds of manual selection.

If you are accepted, you will receive an email from the online application system to your Ivy Tech email account offering you a seat in the program you selected. Offers are emailed beginning within one week of the application close date and continue until program capacity is met or one week before the start of semester classes. Each round of offers begins at 6:00 am and applicants have until 11:59 pm the following day to either accept or reject an offer. You must respond to that email to accept the offer. If you do not respond within the time limit, your offer expires, and the offer will be made to the next student on the list.

Depending on their rank and offers, a student could potentially receive multiple offers. Once you accept one offer, you are immediately withdrawn from all other offers. You will be contacted by the chair or dean of the program you accepted with information about the program orientation date, time, and location.

If a student fails to respond within the 48-hour timeline, then the offer expires. If a student rejects an offer three (3) times, the application is removed from the auto-selection application pool but will then be available for manual selection rounds that occur later in the process.

You do have the ability to withdraw your application at any point during the admission cycle. However, once you withdraw your application, you will not be able to apply again until the next application cycle.

After You're Accepted

If you are accepted into the program, congratulations! Accepted students are required to attend an orientation session at your local campus during the semester prior to beginning classes. An email will be sent following your acceptance with details about the session.

What If I Don’t Get Admitted?

The Diagnostic Medical Sonography program does not maintain a waitlist. Applicants who are not accepted can reapply in the next semester’s application cycle. You may also want to meet with your advisor. Advisors can assist students in exploring other programs of interest in Ivy Tech’s School of Health Sciences if they have applied several times and have not been accepted into the program. Ivy Tech offers many programs similar to Diagnostic Medical Sonography that lead to high-demand jobs that may be new to you but fit your passion to help others.

What is Selective Admission? 

The Diagnostic Medical Sonography (DMS) program is a selective admissions program. This means we can only accept a small number of students each year. 

Weighted Point System

A weighted point system is used to evaluate applicants for admission. Student applications are assigned points based on their grades in prerequisite courses. Point totals for applicants receiving admission offers will vary between campuses. Point totals are not shared.

General Education Weighted Point System

When multiple course attempts are reported on applicant transcripts (including transcripts from other colleges and universities), the highest earned grade of the first three attempts will be used for the selection decision score through the application period. Points for courses transferred from other institutions will be awarded based on the grade recorded on the transcript, provided transfer credit appears on the Ivy Tech transcript.
