Diagnostic Medical Sonography Associate Degree Program
The DMS associate degree program will prepare competent entry-level sonographers in the cognitive (knowledge), psychomotor (skills), and affective (behavior) learning domains for the abdominal-extended and obstetrics and gynecology sonography concentrations. From learning how the equipment works to optimizing images, interpreting scans and recognizing abnormal findings, you will learn all sides of sonography. At Pima Medical Institute, professionalism and excellent communication skills are prioritized along with the clinical courses and lab training due to the amount of direct care with patients in this healthcare field.
A diagnostic medical sonographer – also referred to as “ultrasound technologist” – uses specialized equipment to create images of the body. A physician reviews these images, or sonograms, to make a medical diagnosis.

“Pima Medical was not only my school for ultrasound, it was also the place I learned English. My instructors were extremely helpful and patient. I had a very good clinical experience and, in fact, they called the school to see if they could hire me before I had even finished. I have been working in hospital settings as an ultrasound technologist and have even taught at Pima Medical in their DMS program.”
