Richmond/Emerywood Campus Adds New Sonography Degree – Demand for Sonographers to Grow 44% by 2020

Richmond, VA – The Richmond/Emerywood campus of ECPI University’s School of Health Science, Medical Careers Institute, is now offering a Diagnostic Medical Sonography degree in response to increased demand from healthcare providers.

According to the U.S. Department of Labor, imaging technology is expected to evolve rapidly, spawning many new Sonography procedures that will allow sonographers to scan and image areas of the body where ultrasound has not traditionally been used. As a result, the government projects that employment of diagnostic medical sonographers will grow by 44 percent between 2010 and 2020, much faster than the average for all occupations.

Students enrolling in this program can earn an Associate of Applied Science Degree in Health Science – Diagnostic Medical Sonography in 1.5 years through the University’s year-round schedule.  The program’s classroom curriculum is supported by a hands-on, interactive learning environment, covering such areas as:

  • Ultrasound equipment operations and quality control
  • Sonographic principles of the abdomen, obstetrics and gynecology, breast and other superficial structures, invasive Sonographic procedures, neonatal, trauma, and an introduction to vascular Sonography
  • Cross-sectional anatomy, physiology and pathophysiology

Upon program completion, graduates are qualified to take the American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonographers (ARDMS) registry examinations in Ultrasound Physics and Instrumentation (SPI), Abdomen (AB), Obstetrics/Gynecology (OB/GYN).
