We’ve carefully designed the curriculum to provide students with the well-rounded knowledge and training needed to thrive in the Sonography industry. It also meets the requirements of leading healthcare accrediting organizations.

An Innovative Approach to Learning

Cambridge College’s Diagnostic Medical Sonography program offers a hybrid approach to learning. Over the 24-month program, students are offered knowledge and training through various means, including:

  • Classroom and distance learning: Foundational courses are offered by highly skilled and experienced instructors, both in the classroom and online via distance learning platforms. Small class sizes, focused courses and supportive instructors offer the optimal learning environment for every student.
  • Hands-on training: Throughout the program, students learn using the latest in imaging technology. This hands-on approach to training prepares students to use the actual technology currently utilized in the healthcare field.
  • Clinical externship: Experience in the field is a crucial part of the learning process. With that in mind, we’ve developed externship programs with many Atlanta-area medical providers. The required externship allows students to learn in a true healthcare environment and prepare for the transition into the workforce.
