What will I learn?

Be Prepared to Enter the Field of Sonography

Sonographers are important members of the diagnostic medical imaging or surgical team. As a sonographer, you’ll work closely with radiologists, cardiologists and vascular or general surgeons, as well as other allied professionals. In this role, you’ll help diagnose, treat and prevent diseases and disabilities, improving the health care conditions of your community. Nova Southeastern University’s B.S. in Medical Sonography program integrates both general and vascular sonography into its curriculum, giving you a competitive advantage when it’s time to enter the workforce.

General sonography includes subspecialties in obstetrics and gynecology, abdomen and small parts (soft tissues and superficial glands), as well as neurosonology. Vascular sonography studies the anatomical and physiological characteristics of blood vessels (veins and arteries) in the human body. At NSU, you’ll gain hands-on experience in high-tech laboratories, and develop your skills through an intensive 12-month clinical externship.

Your NSU professors are dedicated to ensuring that you have a great academic experience. They regularly review the curriculum to make updates that give you an edge in today’s ever-changing world. As an NSU Medical Sonography major, some courses that you could take include Health Care and Aging, Ultrasound Physics, Venous Testing, Cerebrovascular Testing and Abdominal Sonography.
