Clinical education takes place at Mercyhealth’s Javon Bea Hospital–Rockton, Javon Bea Hospital–Riverside, Women’s Center, Vascular Lab, and at various Mercyhealth clinics. Students will work in the hospital and clinic with physicians, radiology professionals, and other members of the health care team.
Students who successfully complete the Sonography Program are awarded a certificate from the Mercyhealth School of Sonography, and are then eligible to apply for the national certification examinations offered by the American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonographers (ARDMS).
The Americans with Disabilities Act requires that careful consideration be given to all applicants seeking education or employment. The act also requires that accommodations be provided to the disabled person when proven to be reasonable. It also supports the identification of essential job functions that may be used with other selection criteria in the screening of potential applicants for a professional curriculum or employment.
The diagnostic medical sonographer is a caregiver who plays a fundamental role in the diagnosis of a patient’s medical condition.
Implied in this caregiving role are essential job functions that require the sonographer to demonstrate cognitive, psychomotor, and affective skills. The performance of these job functions must be consistent with the expectation that diagnostic medical sonographers must not place themselves, a fellow worker, or the patient in jeopardy of physical or mental harm.
