Program Description

Diagnostic Medical Sonography (DMS) prepares you to use highly complex medical imagine equipment, analyze acquired images for quality, assess patient condition, and apply appropriate techniques of patient care and education. In addition to fostering your intellectual growth, we advise you to exercise good judgment, demonstrate a professional demeanor, display the highest moral and ethical standards, and promote the safety of yourself and your patients.

The Diagnostic Medical Sonography program has a selective admissions process. The program application and requirements are available in the Health & Public Safety office or at Pueblo Community College DMS. Applications are provided during Spring Semester DMS 1001 course. All Health & Public Safety programs have essential functions to help you be successful in the program and career.

All applicants must possess a two-year health-related (patient care-related) degree or a four-year degree from a regionally accredited institution. As long as the applicant has one of these degree types and have completed program prerequisite courses, the program is the same and results in an AAS degree.

Note: You must undergo a background check and drug screen before we can officially admit you into the program. A felony, loss of license, administrative disciplinary proceeding for negligence, malpractice, recklessness, or willful or intentional misconduct may prohibit entrance into the program and/or eligibility to sit for licensure exams.
