Frequently Asked Questions
What are the prerequisites?
The prerequisites for Sonography schools vary by college or university. For example, prerequisites for an Associates or Bachelors degree may simply be a high school diploma or your GED, whereas others may require completion of a two-year allied health program or some introductory college credits related to biology, physics and medical terminology. For a Masters program, previous completion of a Bachelors degree is required; graduate faculties may require that you have completed some relevant courses during your undergraduate degree, such as Anatomy/Physiology, Physics/Math and Communications. You can request information from our list of ultrasound schools to find out what that institution’s specific prerequisites are.
Should I request further information and talk to a school representative?
Yes and it’s recommended that you prepare a list of questions ahead of time. Some areas you may wish to cover are whether the program makes you eligible to sit for an ARDMS certification exam (most programs do), what ultrasound specialties or courses are available, clinical locations and schedules, the program’s timeline, the availability of ultrasound equipment (i.e. is it compatible with current or progressive technologies), scholarship/bursary opportunities and pre-requisites for admissions.
Can I request information from more than one school?
Yes you can request information from multiple ultrasound schools and in fact, it is recommended that you do so. It will cost you nothing, and that way you can compare the programs that each of the schools offers, so that you can choose an educational plan that fits your career goals, your ideal location, a specialty within ultrasound that you may wish to pursue, amenities you value and your schedule.
