DMS 472 Sonography Clinical Externship, 2-5 credits

Clinical externships provide an opportunity for the sonographer to expand his/her knowledge in specialty fields or a different area of sonography. Areas may include, but not limited to, perinatology, vascular, cardiac, or pediatrics. The sonographer (student) is responsible to secure a clinical facility willing to provide quality clinical education in the specialty area desired. In conjunction with the Chair of Sonography, a clinical education affiliate contract with the facility will be required prior to commencement of the externship. The student can determine the value for the number of credits at a ratio of 120 clinical hours = 1 credit up to a maximum of 5 credits.
