FBI Fingerprint and Background Check

The Joint Commission on Accreditation of Health Care Administration of Health Care Organizations (JACHO), which accredits healthcare organizations across the country, has set up requirements mandating that students must complete the same background check as health care employees. Students accepted into the Diagnostic Medical Sonography (DMS) program must, at their own expense, complete a background check and FBI fingerprinting, which must be renewed yearly.

Drug Testing

Students who have been selected into the DMS program must take and pass a 10 panel drug screen as part of acceptance criteria for the Diagnostic Medical Sonography program.
