Trinity Health will award a Certificate in Diagnostic Medical Sonography (DMS) upon the successful completion of the 18-month program. The challenging, but rewarding, program is designed to prepare students to develop the best possible skills in sonography and to demonstrate the utmost respect and concern for the well-being of all the patients they serve. Enrollment is limited and competitive. Evaluation of the qualifications of each applicant and the final selections for admission are made by the admission committee, which is comprised of program faculty and administrative and clinical staff. This certificate will recognize the completion of a course of study in a general concentration, to include sonography of abdominal, gynecological, obstetrical, and superficial tissue medical imaging.
If you have an existing associate or bachelor’s degree and meet the prerequisites, you may apply for the certificate option. The certificate option will allow you to sit for the credentialing exams.
An Associate of Applied Science (AAS) in Diagnostic Medical Sonography (DMS) degree is offered in collaboration with Dakota College at Bottineau (DCB). Students will first apply to DCB to complete the 32-33 credits of the prerequisite course work, then apply to the Trinity Health DMS program. Accepted students will continue enrollment at DCB throughout the 18-month DMS program on the Trinity Health campus.
Students seeking a Bachelor of Science (BS) degree are eligible to apply to the Sonography Program after first completing the required coursework at an affiliated academic institution. We have worked with academic institutions to ensure you get the exact prerequisite education you need to be a strong candidate for our program. Similar to DCB/Trinity Health co-enrolled students, those pursuing the option of obtaining a Bachelor of Science in Diagnostic Medical Sonography (DMS) degree in collaboration with Minot State University (MSU) PENDING Fall 2020, will continue enrollment at MSU throughout the 18-month DMS program on the Trinity Health campus.
