Program Summary

Bachelor of Science in Diagnostic Ultrasound

Program Summary

As a student of our Bachelor of Science in Diagnostic Ultrasound program, you will join a community of faculty and students dedicated to your success. No matter what track you pursue, your program of study will include foundational courses in math, biology, physics, chemistry and UCORR. In your third and fourth years, you will take higher level courses that focus on your specific track within the DIUS program.

If you are a transfer or post-baccalaureate student, we have developed plans of study that allow you to dive into the foundational and DIUS courses you need to earn your degree.

To complete your degree, you will:

  • Complete a minimum 180 credits
  • Hold a cumulative and major GPA of 2.50 or higher
  • Receive a C or better in all required major courses

Hands-on Clinical Experience

The last four quarters of your time in the DIUS program will include a hands-on sonography clinical experience in which you will be placed at one of our partner DIUS Clinical sites. Clinical site availability varies each year, with our partner sites typically including both inpatient and outpatient settings in teaching hospitals, community hospitals and ambulatory care clinics sites within the Seattle area, WA state, West Coast and throughout the United States. 

All DIUS placements are recruited and coordinated by the DIUS Clinical Placement Coordinator. To assure fairness in clinical placements, assignments are made by randomly ‘pulling student names from a box’. After a student’s name is pulled, that student is offered the available clinical site. If the student chooses to decline that site, their name is then placed in a second box. Once all students in the first box have been given their initial chance for an assignment, any names placed in the second box will be given their next opportunity for placement.
