Rochester Institute of Technology: The diagnostic medical sonography program at Rochester Institute of Technology was awarded continuing accreditation in compliance with national standards and guidelines established by the profession.

The Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs led the comprehensive evaluation of the program in conjunction with a peer review conducted by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Diagnostic Medical Sonography. Accreditation verifies the high caliber of RIT’s sonography/ultrasound program in specialty areas of abdominal-extended, cardiac, and obstetrics and gynecology education and ensures the education of qualified sonographers.

RIT offers diagnostic medical sonography (ultrasound) BS/certificate and echocardiography (cardiac ultrasound) certificate programs within the College of Health Sciences and Technology. Ultrasound education at RIT has expanded and advanced under the leadership of professor and director Hamad Ghazle and his team.

“Accreditation is not only about assessing programmatic performance, but also about transformative and strategic plans that will improve the quality and clarity of experiences of all involved and prepare individuals for a lifetime of learning and leadership,” Ghazle said.

His team works together to ensure a high level of excellence in ultrasound education. “It is a commitment and a responsibility we take seriously,” Ghazle said. “Our success is mirrored in the success of our graduates, who better the community with their skill and knowledge. Our continued accreditation keeps standards high for everyone involved—RIT, our students, our graduates and the community in which they work, and most of all, for the patients they serve.”

The Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs evaluates programs that prepare health professionals in a variety of disciplines.

National standards for diagnostic medical sonography programs are established by the commission and joint review committee along with the American College of Cardiology Foundation, American College of Radiology, American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine, American Society of Echocardiography, American Society of Radiologic Technologists, International Contrast Ultrasound Society, Society of Diagnostic Medical Sonography, and the Society for Vascular Ultrasound.

The accreditation process repeats every five years and includes regular monitoring of program compliance. RIT’s diagnostic medical sonography program has until 2027 to complete its next evaluation and site visit.
