Program Goals and Outcomes

The goals and learning outcomes for the Diagnostic Medical Sonography program are divided into the following categories:

  • Patient Care (Affective)
  • Professional Development (Behavioral)
  • Clinical Proficiency (Cognitive)

At a minimum, students will be evaluated in the ABCs – affective, behavioral and cognitive skills – on a quarterly basis. In addition, these domains will be evaluated in a comprehensive professional growth evaluation. The analysis, performed by the clinical staff, will be cumulative and representative of all cohorts. A benchmark of 90 (A-) will be expected in each of the categories.

Below are the program outcomes for students who enrolled in the Diagnostic Medical Sonography program at AIMS Education. These outcomes are based on our 2020 Annual Report submitted to JRC-DMS in December 2021. The 2020 Annual Report covers the period from January 1, 2020 to December 31, 2020.
