A key component for admission into our sonography program is observation in an ultrasound department, preferably at Loma Linda University Medical Center.
We provide opportunities for prospective students at Loma Linda University Medical Center to see first hand what the profession is about. We encourage prospective students to witness sonography procedures and to talk to sonography professionals and graduates of our programs.
Eight hours are required as part of the application process for the program. Students must have their observation done by the end of March and completed before their interview. It is preferred that some observation is done at LLUMC, if distance allows.
Dress professionally. Lab coats or scrubs are preferred or professional dress for patient-care setting. No open-toe shoes.
As a prospective student observer you will be asked to sign a waiver of liability before you are allowed in a clinical/hospital setting. You may be exposed to environmental hazards commonly found in a hospital radiation services setting (i.e. x-ray radiation hazards, exposure to contagious diseases, etc.). You must also adhere to the patient confidentiality polices of the facility.

When observing at Loma Linda University Medical Center, report to the ultrasound department on the second floor. Identify yourself to the department receptionist. You may park in visitor parking in the front of the Medical Center.
