Clark State College will host a virtual Diagnostic Medical Sonography (DMS) Q & A session from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m., Thursday, May 6.
Attendees will learn about Clark State’s new DMS program with Megan Powell, DMS program director, in a TRIO Student Support Services sponsored session to answer all questions about this exciting new program.
“Diagnostic Medical Sonography (DMS) is the non-invasive use of high-frequency sound waves to image anatomic structures within the body,” said Powell. “The sonographer is responsible for acquiring diagnostic images of normal and abnormal structures and reporting findings to the appropriate supervising physician.”
Powell said upon graduation from Clark State's DMS program, sonographers may be employed by hospitals, private physician practices, diagnostic imaging centers, research departments, and ultrasound machine manufacturers in general or vascular ultrasound.
“I look forward to answering questions about our exciting new DMS program and the fast-growing career of sonography,” said Powell. “All are welcome, including the public and current and prospective students."
Clark State’s Diagnostic Medical Sonography program combines didactic and clinical learning experiences that are within the legal scope of responsibility of sonographers.
The DMS program is available at the Clark State Springfield - Leffel Lane location. DMS courses are composed of traditional lectures, online courses, and hands-on skills labs. Technical courses are offered either onsite on campus or online. Clinical rotations are off-site in clinical facilities in the greater Springfield, Dayton, Columbus, and Cincinnati, Ohio regions.
"TRIO Student Support Services is excited to sponsor this virtual informational event to promote one of Clark State College's newest health majors in a growing field,” said Callie Cary-Devine, Project Director, TRIO Student Support Services Program.
