Diagnostic medical sonography technologists are involved in direct patient care. Diagnostic medical sonographers use high-frequency sound waves (ultrasound) to produce dynamic visual images of organs, tissues and blood flow inside the body. This is a 3+1.5 program in which the first three years of course work is completed at Roosevelt University with the final year and a half completed at Northwestern Memorial Hospital.
Roosevelt University is the only university that is affiliated with all four of the Northwestern Memorial Hospital Clinical School programs. Our downtown Chicago location allows students to continue to live on campus and have access to the RU support services and activities during the 18 month clinical training.
