EVANSVILLE, Ind. (Inside INdiana Business) – The University of Southern Indiana is adding to its offerings. The university is introducing a Bachelor of Science in Diagnostic Medical Sonography degree program, as well as three new certification programs.

USI says the Diagnostic Medical Sonography degree within the College of Nursing and Health Professions will prepare students to work in the modern healthcare system as entry-level sonographers. The degree focuses on current trends in the sonography profession, enrollment data, future program expansion and advising capabilities.
