Diagnostic Medical Sonography

Pre-Medical Option

Thinking of medical, dental, veterinary, or graduate school? Have you asked yourself what is needed to distinguish you from the rest of the applicants? We have the answer for you!

The Diagnostic Medical Sonography Program at RIT has assisted students to enter the world of medicine and dentistry. With the addition of a few courses and WITHOUT extending your stay at RIT, our program will prepare you for medical, dental, veterinary, or graduate school.

Graduates of the program have gone on to become physicians, dentists, chiropractors, veterinarians, etc.

What is needed to enter the medical/dental career fields? Most of these schools require students to complete basic science courses such as physics, chemistry, biology, mathematics, and liberal arts including English and literature.

Upon examining the Diagnostic Medical Sonography (Ultrasound) Program curriculum, one will notice that all of these courses are required and taught. Your Bachelor of Science (BS) degree will not only provide you with the Premedical and Pre-dental requirements, but also will provide you with invaluable "hands-on" medical experience. This medical experience can be the tool to distinguish you from other applicants. In addition, the B.S. degree in Ultrasound will allow you to obtain a professional job with good pay while waiting to enroll in the dental, medical, or veterinary school of your choice.

Due to the complexity of the preparation for such careers, a premedical advisory committee will assist you in all aspects of the application process, interviewing, etc...

It is important to realize that the Diagnostic Medical Sonography program curriculum is not only developed to produce leaders in the field of Ultrasound, but also to produce well-educated, well-rounded and compassionate individuals who become active participants in their respective societies.

As you may know, good grades, medical experience, and a well-rounded education will be your key to enter the medical, dental, or veterinarian school of your choice.
