3) Do you offer weekend classes?

4) May I complete all of my coursework online?

You will need the case study interaction in class, the laboratory scanning sessions, and the extensive amount of clinical experiences to assimilate your classroom learning. 

At this time there is no online coursework available. However, in the future there may be some opportunities for some online activities.

5) Can I complete one sonography program and go directly into the other?

In order to obtain all of the didactic and clinical hours of the program each student must attend all classes sponsored by the specific curriculum. Should a student want to complete both programs he/she must follow the application procedure and then be accepted into the program. Regardless of whether the student has already taken some of the classes (Introduction to Sonography, Songraphic Physics) the student must retake all of the courses to ensure adequate hours for ARDMS certification.

Being accepted into one program does not guarantee that the student will also be accepted into the other.
