GALVESTON, Texas – Beginning this fall, Galveston College will offer a new program for students interested in careers in diagnostic medical sonography.

 

Recently approved by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges, the Diagnostic Medical Sonography program is designed to provide a quality and comprehensive education through didactic, laboratory and clinical experiences that prepare students for entry-level positions and to become multi-credentialed sonographers.

 

A diagnostic medical sonographer is a highly skilled professional who uses specialized equipment to create images of structures inside the human body that are used by physicians to make a medical diagnosis.

 

In the Associate of Applied Science two-year program, students attend classroom sessions and get practical experience in the ultrasound-scanning lab and through clinical rotations in area hospitals and other healthcare facilities.

 

Clinical rotations are work-based learning experiences, where students practice what they have learned in a real-life setting under the supervision of a professional.

 

The outlook for employment as a diagnostic medical sonographer is very good, according to the U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics. It predicts that employment will grow 47 percent from 2014 to 2024, much faster than the average for all occupations.

 

Diagnostic medical sonographers on the Texas Gulf Coast earn a median salary of $84,942 per year.

 

For more information about this program, contact Hubert Callahan, Allied Health Division director, at hcallaha@gc.edu or the Galveston College Admissions office at (409) 944-1230.
