Currently offered at our Ottawa campus, Diagnostic Medical Sonography is a profession that provides patient care services using ultrasound and related diagnostic procedures. The diagnostic medical sonographer must be educationally prepared and clinically competent before entering the workforce as a practitioner. The diagnostic medical sonographer works under a physician and does not practice independently. Diagnostic medical sonographers are committed to patient care and continued improvement. They use independent judgement and must adhere to strict professional and ethical standards. Critical thinking skills are essential for this profession.
