Train to perform ultrasound procedures and help monitor patient health in hospitals and community clinics through this specialized program covering all the key aspects of ultrasound technology, as well as anatomy and patient care.

As a two and a half year program offered full-time, Diagnostic Medical Sonography, also known as ultrasound, is a technology involving the application of high-frequency sound waves toward patients to help physicians in medical diagnoses.

Diagnostic medical sonographers work as members of patient care teams, assessing patients and providing information to physicians for diagnoses and monitoring patients’ health status. This is a specialized vocation requiring a high degree of technical skills and exceptional interpersonal skills.

This program teaches key aspects of ultrasound technology including obstetrics and gynecology, the cardiac and vascular systems and abdomen and superficial structures. Studies also include patient care, physics, anatomy and physiology, equipment instrumentation, quality control and the performance of diagnostic scanning procedures.

The Diagnostic Medical Sonography program is 26 months in length and consists of theory and lab courses along with practicum rotations off-campus. Practicum locations are constantly changing. All students can expect to be placed outside of Calgary (including out of province) more than once during the program.

BE WARNED!!! 👇SAIT unethical and unfair business practice that you need to be aware of so you don't waste your time and money!
I applied to SAIT in May for an OPEN advertised program, waited 2 months + for an update on my application status only to be told that the same program been advertised as Open to the public up until the 1st week of July was actually filled by early February.
I reached out to the CEO, who passed my concerns on to his registrar, who up till my writting have not deem it fit to address and provide answers as to why an institution would advertised a non existent program defrauding applicants of their hard earned money and causing so much frustration and uncertainty.
So to avoid the same frustration and waste of time and resource that I experienced, you are better off seeking admission from any other institution.
