What will I learn?

The Bachelor of Science in Medical Imaging Science is designed to prepare graduates with a concentration in diagnostic medical sonography or cardiovascular sonography awarded jointly between FDU and The Rutgers University School of Health Professions(SHP). Students must complete 92 pre-professional credits during their first three years at FDU before applying for acceptance to the professional component at Rutgers for their senior year.

Completion of this program will result in a Bachelor of Science in Medical Imaging Science awarded jointly between:

Fairleigh Dickinson University and
The Rutgers University School of Health Professions (SHP)

Graduates will be eligible for national certification and state licensure, where applicable.

Students must choose one of the following two areas of concentration:

Diagnostic Medical Sonography

Diagnostic medical sonographers provide patient services using diagnostic ultrasound under the supervision of a licensed physician. Sonographers look for subtle differences between health and pathological areas and decide what images to include in their report. The sonographer may provide this service in a variety of medical settings when the physician is responsible for the use and interpretation of ultrasound procedures.

Cardiovascular Sonography

The cardiovascular sonography program prepares cardiovascular sonographers to be an integral part of the medical management team. The 15- month cardiac sonography program has a proven record of success as measured by retention rates, credentialing achievements and post-graduation employment.
