Diagnostic Medical Sonography

Diagnostic Medical Sonography

Diagnostic Medical Sonography (medical ultrasound) uses high-frequency sound waves to produce images from inside a patient’s body. Trained sonographers administer these tests as prescribed by physicians to aid in the diagnosis and assessment of disease and medical conditions, and to monitor fetal development.

Macomb’s program is offered reciprocally with Oakland Community College. If you are a Macomb County resident, you may take prerequisite courses at Macomb and, upon acceptance into Oakland’s Diagnostic Medical Sonography program, complete your studies at Oakland’s Southfield Campus, paying Oakland’s “in-district” tuition rate.

You must submit a letter of application to Macomb’s Health and Human Services office (Center Campus, E219) before Dec. 1 if you plan to have completed the prerequisites by then. All prerequisites must be successfully completed by the end of the fall semester to be considered a transfer student to OCC the following year.
