Diagnostic Medical Sonography Emphasis

Diagnostic Medical Sonographers direct high frequency sound waves into the body to obtain medical images that assist physicians with the diagnosis of disease.  Sonographers must possess excellent interpersonal communication skills, strong critical thinking skills, and significant hand-eye coordination.

The Boise State Diagnostic Medical Sonography Program is one full calendar year long, consisting of integrated classroom and clinical education.  The student is responsible to provide transportation to and from their assigned clinical sites.

A schedule of the current university enrollment fees, financial aid and student housing information can be obtained at http://www.boisestate.edu or by calling the New Student Information Center at 208-426-1679.
