The two-year Diagnostic Medical Sonography Ontario College Graduate Certificate program provides you with the crucial knowledge and technical skills to produce sonographic images and carry out diagnostic procedures.

Diagnostic medical sonography is a diverse and dynamic field of work. Sonographers must be able to work well in stressful situations and think critically. The quality of an ultrasound study is dependent on the skills of the sonographer.

Through theory, simulation, lab practice and many extensive clinical experiences, you learn to produce quality sonographic images. You consider health and safety in your work and apply quality assurance for the safe and proper use of ultrasound.

You have two 600-hour field placements where you enhance your technical, professional, interpersonal and patient management skills. These acquired skills help you to function as a member of a healthcare team.

This program offers you the hands-on skills you need for success. Algonquin College`s Diagnostic Medical Sonography program is accredited by the Accreditation Canada EQaITM, and graduates from accredited programs are eligible to write the national certification through Sonography Canada.

Upon successful completion of the national certification exam, you hold the title of Canadian Generalist Sonographer. Graduates must register with the College of Medical Radiation and Imaging Technologists of Ontario (CMRITO) to be eligible for employment in Ontario.
