Diagnostic Medical Sonography Program

Sonography is a diagnostic medical procedure that uses high frequency sound waves (ultrasound) to produce images of organs, tissues or blood flow inside the body. It is used to examine many parts of the body and is increasingly used to detect and treat heart and vascular disease. The professionals who perform these procedures are known as sonographers and are in high demand.

At Community Regional Medical Center, we offer one of California’s few hospital-based Diagnostic Medical Sonography programs.

The 18-month program (DMSP) is licensed by California’s Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education and nationally accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP.) Community Regional is accredited by The Joint Commission.
