Regis College is pleased to announce the Diagnostic Medical Sonography (DMS) baccalaureate program is now a multi-concentration program with the addition of a vascular concentration to the abdominal and OB/GYN concentrations.

Regis is the only vascular sonography program in Massachusetts and the only multi-concentration program in New England. This multi-concentration program meets the hospital demands for the current role of a sonographer as well as the urgent need to provide credentialed vascular sonographers to healthcare facilities in Massachusetts.

“Adding the vascular concentration is going to open up so many more doors since I’ll finish my degree with three different certifications,” said Grace Hennessy ’24, a diagnostic medical sonography major.

Regis recently purchased a non-invasive diagnostic testing system for the assessment of peripheral artery disease. This machine, in addition to existing ultrasound systems, allows students to demonstrate competency in scanning abdominal organs, small organs and male and female reproductive systems, as well as carotid arteries, peripheral arteries, and peripheral veins.

Assistant Professor and Program Director Cory Finn, BS, RDMS, RVT notes that the inclusion of a vascular concentration prepares students for success in the field. “We look forward to our students in this unique program track beginning their clinical rotations this fall.”
