Diagnostic Medical Sonography School Mission


The mission of the University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics (UWHC) School of Diagnostic Medical Sonography is to educate students in the art and science of diagnostic medical sonography.


Our graduates serve all of Wisconsin. Our mission complements the missions of UW Health, UW Center for Health Sciences and the UW Hospital and Clinics. These overall missions include caring for the ill and injured, serving community health needs, educating new health professionals and furthering the use for medical research through medical imaging. As an integral part of the UW Health community, students participate in the achievement of the schools and institution's mission and goals.


Our school's mission is achieved when the graduate has successfully completed the program as determined by the program standards. The program's mission, goals, outcomes and standards are evaluated annually by the faculty, department and hospital administration and the school advisory committee.
