The Medical Sonography curriculum provides knowledge and clinical skills in the application of high frequency sound waves to image internal body structures. Course work includes physics, cross-sectional anatomy, abdominal, introductory vascular, and obstetrical/gynecological sonography. Competencies are attained in identification of normal anatomy and pathological processes, use of equipment, fetal growth and development, integration of related imaging, and patient interaction skills. Graduates of accredited programs may be eligible to take examinations in ultrasound physics and instrumentation and specialty examinations administered by the American Registry of Diagnostic Medical Sonographers and find employment in clinics, physicians? offices, mobile services, hospitals, and educational institutions.
The Medical Sonography program is a collaborative agreement between Pitt Community College and Nash Community College. Students are welcome to apply to Nash CC to complete the general education classes before transferring to Pitt CC to gain acceptance into the program. Nash is allowed two seats into Pitt’s program annually. To be considered for one of these two seats, the student must have met the minimum requirements for the program and let Nash CC Admissions know their intentions
