Sonography Training Program Curriculum

Each student will be assigned to an affiliate hospital for clinical training. The curriculum is designed so that the didactic courses will be given in a specified sequence. Students will then utilize this information in the clinical rotation as they learn each area. Students will add to their expertise throughout the program.
