Medical Imaging Specialization
The Applied Health Sciences BAS, Medical Imaging specialization includes the choice of tracks in Vascular Sonography or Adult Cardiac Sonography (a new track available in the 2020-2021 catalog curriculum starting Fall Term 2020). The specialization has been developed solely for the continued education of licensed imaging professionals. Eastern Florida State College recognizes the need for continued education within the professional imaging community and offers this specific specialization to imaging professionals with an Associate in Science degree from an accredited college in Sonography. Applicants must also have current ARDMS registration (any specialty), ARRT certification in Sonography Primary, or CCI certification.
Coursework for both tracks takes place at EFSC's Health Sciences Institute on the
Melbourne Campus, and also includes hands-on experience in clinical settings. Core
courses and technical electives are also available online, allowing the flexibility
needed to accommodate busy schedules.
Eligible students can be granted up to 60 credits toward the BAS Medical Imaging Sciences Specialization - Vascular Technology or Adult Cardiac Sonography tracks - if they are a credentialed diagnostic medical sonographer who has completed an A.S. degree in sonography from an educational program accredited by CAAHEP through the JRCDMS.
Additional credits are awarded on a case-by-case basis with consideration given to program accreditation, program length and content, the applicant's performance in the program, and professional credentialing of the applicant.
As part of the bachelor's degree program of study, students will take courses that can also lead to either the Vascular Sonography Advanced Technical Certificate or the Adult Cardiac Sonography Advanced Technical Certificate that are embedded in the BAS program curriculum. (The Adult Cardiac ATC information is available now for Fall Term start and will be reflected on the 2020-21 BAS curriculum soon).
