Diagnostic Medical Sonography Sample Curriculum

There are no pre-requisites required prior to applying to the Diagnostic Medical Sonography (DMS) program. All courses can be completed at Bryan College of Health Sciences. We accept transfer credits with a grade of "c" or higher. Transfer credits do not speed up your time to graduation, but will lessen your course load as you progress through the program. For more information about what transfers in, visit our transfer guides. DMS students can also add a vascular minor to their program of study.
