The University of Kansas certificate program in diagnostic ultrasound technology (general and vascular) strives to ensure that the sonographer-in-training acquires the knowledge, skills and competencies necessary to enter the profession of diagnostic medical sonography. This is accomplished through didactic and clinical training, as well as practical experience with a diverse patient population. Graduates will be able to safely perform high-quality ultrasound procedures and thereby actively contribute towards excellent patient care.

Performance is evaluated by standard testing methods and a competency-based monitoring process that evaluates the sonographer-in-training's technical competence and ability to promote the well-being of the patient. Upon completion of the program, the graduate will have satisfied all prerequisites necessary to apply for professional credentialing and registration.
