Carroll University offers an opportunity  to major in Health Sciences with an Emphasis in Diagnostic Medical Sonography (DMS) through Aurora Health Care in Milwaukee or through the University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics in Madison. The partnership  allows students the benefits of close, personal attention  during the first two years at Carroll followed by two years at Aurora's School of Diagnostic Medical Sonography and its associated clinical sites or the University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinicals School of Diagnostic Medical Sonography and its associated clinical sites. The student  will be placed with a small class of other students  pursuing  diagnostic medical sonography.

Diagnostic medical sonographers most often are employed in hospitals, but can also find employment with physicians, medical and diagnostic laboratories, diagnostic imaging centers and outpatient care centers.  Some diagnostic  medical sonographers find employment with manufacturers of equipment used in the field. Long-term employment prospects in this area are forecast to be excellent.
Two tracks within the emphasis are available:
(1) General and Vascular or
(2) Cardiac and Vascular.

Entry into the Aurora Health Care or the University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics professional phase of the program is highly competitive and dependent upon completion of Carroll University general education  and  Health  Science  requirements, a  minimum cumulative  and required science course GPA of 3.0, a grade of 'C' or better in all science courses (the Physics 101 and Physics 102 averaged GPA must be at 2.5 or higher), CNA training (at the student's own expense), and the accumulation  of at least 100 hours of direct patient care prior to application.   The acceptance of students into the professional phase of the curriculum  lies with the Aurora Health Care or UW Hospital and Clinics School of Diagnostic Medical Sonography Admissions Committee. There is a requirement  that the student obtain CPR certification from the American Heart Association, prior to application. This program requires year round classes. See Admissions section of the catalog for details on applying.
