Sonography bridge program lets students earn a degree while working
Calling all Sonographers! Did you know you could earn a bachelor’s degree in sonography through our bridge program at American College of Medical Careers? What’s even better is the program’s flexibility. You can take the courses online, allowing you to hold a job while working toward your bachelor’s.
Enrolling in this online bridge program could help you reach your career goals without having to quit work to go back to school. At ACMC, we want to help you further your career in the best way possible. With online course materials available 24/7, we try to make our program as convenient as possible. We know your time is valuable!
Our bridge program is directed by Lyna El-Khoury Rumbarger, who is also program director for two sonography training programs at ACMC:
- Cardiovascular Sonography (adult echo)
- Diagnostic Medical Sonography (abdomen & ob/gyn)
Sonography Bridge Program Curriculum
What will you learn in the Bridge program? The curriculum is designed so that you can choose from three career paths:
- Clinical sonography (invasive procedures, contrast studies, clinical research)
- Education (curriculum development, classroom management, instructional techniques)
- Business/finance (lab accreditation, personnel management, finance)
Some classes take place “live,” and you have to login in at a specified time in order to virtually attend the class. In these classes, instructors present new content, provide relevant examples, and engage students through an online exchange of questions and answers. Other reading and learning can be done at your own pace at any time of day. This online aspect allows you to continue to work while you obtain your degree. The typical commitment for each course is 5 to 6 hours per week.
If you are currently employed as a sonographer, you may even find that your employer offers reimbursement for educational advancement. Be sure to look into the details of what your employer offers!
