About Cross Training Courses
If you are looking for a complete DMS program of study for yourself or an employee it is highly recommended you consider IUD’s CAAHEP accredited One-Year program. Even for those who do meet the requirements for these short-term cross-training courses 90% or more will best be served by the One Year program. The One-Year Program contains all didactic and clinical material needed to meet the requirements for the ARDMS registry exams for the specialties of Abdomen, OB/GYN, and SPI.
However, in very specific situations, IUD offers several short-term Cross-Training and Continuing Medical Education (CME) courses. These courses are intended to be Continuing Medical Education or for employers who would like to cross-train other allied health employees (x-ray, CT, nursing, etc.) into ultrasound, but want a more formal foundational beginning.
It is important to note, that these short-term courses are not stand alone courses, they do not fall under IUD’s CAAHEP accreditation, and after completion, students will still need at least 12 months of clinical training under a registered sonographer and considerable self-study before being able to sit for any registry exams through ARDMS.
