Medical Sonographers in the making
You'll learn a wide variety of practical and patient care skills. Our program is hands-on, with clinical placements throughout your time at Camosun. You'll learn about the science of ultrasound, anatomy and physiology, your role within the medical profession and how to treat patients ethically and with compassion. Located at our Interurban campus, you'll learn how to perform a comprehensive range of entry-to-practice general, obstetrical, cardiac, and vascular ultrasound scans while building theoretical knowledge for advanced and interventional sonography practice.
You'll experience a variety of approaches to educational delivery including traditional face-to-face classroom instruction, practical simulation labs, courses combining face-to-face instruction with distributed education (online learning) support, exclusively online courses, seminars, and supervised clinical practice.
Graduates who pass their National Certification exams are qualified to work all across Canada providing competent, compassionate, culturally appropriate sonography care and service with the highest level of professionalism in both public and private diagnostic imaging facilities.
