Diagnostic Medical Sonography

Mission & Goals

Mission Statement

Center for Allied Health Education has made a firm commitment to the education of students in the field of diagnostic medical sonography.

Our mission is the education of sonographers who reflect excellence in didactic knowledge, clinical skills and patient sensitivity and are capable of performing various sonographic examinations. Our comprehensive curriculum, which includes courses in patient care and medical law and ethics, will provide training to ensure that these services are delivered with compassion and respect for human dignity and diversity.


Center for Allied Health Education offers an educational program in sonography at the certificate level.  Our goal is to prepare competent entry-level general sonographers who will have:
  • Completed all didactic objectives including: passing all courses by achieving a minimum passing grade
  • Completed all clinical objectives including: clinical performance and competency problem solving skills, critical thinking skills, communication skills, professional development and growth

CAHE's Diagnostic Medical Sonography Program is a two-year course of study which allows students to obtain the didactic and clinical experience in order to work in the field. Graduates may be qualified to sit for the American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonography Certification Exams (ARDMS). Passing this exam is strongly recommended for those seeking employment as a diagnostic medical sonographer, especially in New York State. Graduates may additionally choose to enroll through one of our affiliated colleges which will allow them to apply their studies toward the pursuit of a bachelor's degree.
