It will be your responsibility to provide your own transportation to and from the clinical education centers. Due to the diverse geographical locations of the ultrasound clinical sites, you will not be guaranteed a clinical site close to your home or work.


Sonography students will be assigned to a clinical facility by the Program Director. Clinical education centers will require the student to be available for any shift and possibly weekends. You will be responsible for any ID tag the facility requires.
