Ultrasound training is offered through diagnostic medical sonography (DMS) programs. There is one school in the state of New Hampshire that offer education and training in the field. The available program results in a two-year certificate instead of a degree. The sonography programs at Lebanon College and NHTI - Concord's Community College combine academic coursework with clinical training and can prepare students for entry-level employment within medical facilities.
NHTI - Concord's Community College
NHTI - Concord's Community College offers a 50-credit Professional Certificate in Diagnostic Medical Sonography that can be completed in four semesters. Applicants to the program must have earned a bachelor's degree in a science field or completed a 2-year patient care allied health program that meets American Medical Association standards; an interview is also required. Courses teach students about sonographic anatomy and pathology, sonography principles, OB/GYN sonography, sonography physics and vascular ultrasound. Four clinicals and a sonography seminar are required. Hands-on experience can be gained through internships in local hospitals.
While New Hampshire doesn't require that diagnostic medical sonographers obtain licensure, employers may prefer applicants who earn certification. Organizations that offer sonography certification include the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists and the American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonography. In order to be eligible for certification, applicants may need to graduate from an accredited sonography program. NHTI - Concord's Community College sonography program is accredited through the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP).
