Diagnostic Medical Sonography: Abdominal Sonography-Extended and Obstetrics and Gynecology Sonography Specialization, A.A.S.

Diagnostic Medical Sonography is a growing and challenging field.  The skilled professionals who practice sonography must have a passion for medical technology, balanced with a compassionate demeanor.

NOVA’s A.A.S. in Diagnostic Medical Sonography is a competitive program. Prospective students must attend a mandatory information session prior to application, and report their involvement in any prior incident that constitutes a violation of The American Registry of Diagnostic Medical Sonographers (ARDMS) discipline policies. (ARDMS offers a pre-application review process for prospective students.)

Upon completion of the program, students are eligible to take the national certification test as a Registered Diagnostic Medical Sonographer (RDMS).

Make the Smart Choice

  • Transfer is not the primary goal of an A.A.S. degree, but transfer resources are available for students interested in applying to four-year institutions.

  • The Diagnostic Medical Sonography program emphasizes hands-on training at NOVA’s Medical Education Campus.
