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.

Absolutely horrible. I quickly realized high school upgrading classes are for people who recently took the class and wanted get better grades. It’s been 20 yrs since I was in school and was hoping to learn something but the teachers only wanted to talk soccer. I tried multiple times to get help from my teacher and was told to get a tutor. I paid a lot of money and took a lot of my time to take this course only to realize I’ve been duped. That the teacher in the class isn’t there to help but to fill a seat with a warm butt. I complained and tried to get my money back but it was too late they said. And being behind with a teacher who won’t teach or help…I dropped out and the experience stopped me from taking any education classes. I only wish when I called to sign up that sait wouldn’t lie to you but say “it’s only to refresh if you just took the course last term. Don’t expect to be taught anything but the latest soccer scores.”

I took the Engineering Design and Drafting Technology program. The education was second to none. I would highly recommend SAIT to anyone
