New Sonography Program to begin Fall 2016 at Bellin College!

Bellin College is excited to announce a new degree program offering. The College received accreditation from the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) to offer Diagnostic Medical Sonography to begin fall 2016 as a new bachelor degree program. The diagnostic medical sonographer is an essential, highly-skilled member of the healthcare team dedicated to preserving patients’ health by helping to diagnose injury and disease.

This program will provide excellent opportunities, resources, and state of the art facilities to enhance students’ academic and clinical experience. With small class sizes, students will gain clinical, academic, and laboratory training.  Students will graduate with a Bachelor of Science in Diagnostic Medical Sonography in three years. Upon successful completion, graduates will be eligible to take the American Registry Diagnostic Medical Sonographers (ARDMS) certification examinations in obstetrics and gynecology, abdomen, vascular, and sonography principles and instrumentation.

“Hospital demand and insurance reimbursement is beginning to require that sonographers be registered in vascular, obstetrics and gynecology, and abdomen if they perform any of these exams. For this reason, Bellin College has designed a unique program that offers students the ability to learn all these specialties while obtaining their bachelor’s degree. Classes are offered in ergonomics and safety to minimize the risk of injuries at work and in leadership for Bellin College students to become leaders in the field.  Adding sonography to the degree programs offered at Bellin College will help meet the demands for healthcare in the surrounding areas,” said Amanda Hogan, Sonography Program Director at Bellin College.

Bellin College also received approval from HLC to offer distance education courses for their RN to BSN program online.

Applications are now being accepted for the Bachelor of Science in Diagnostic Medical Sonography for fall 2016. For more information contact our Admissions Office at admissions@bellincollege.edu or
