Medical Sciences

You may have heard about some rapidly evolving medical services fields, which is why you’re exploring the Medical Science program at Edgewood College.

There are two paths you may wish to explore: medical sonography, and radiologic technology.

As a diagnostic medical sonographer, you’ll perform diagnostic ultrasound examinations and work under the guidance of physicians. You’ll employ ultrasound, or high-frequency sound waves, to detect and diagnose diseases in body organs and tissues.

As a Medical Sciences major with a sonography concentration, you will complete three years of undergraduate academic study at Edgewood College. You’ll then apply to the School of Diagnostic Medical Sonography (located in Madison) in the fall semester of your junior year. If admitted to this highly competitive program, you will complete two additional years at the University of Wisconsin Hospitals and Clinics (UWHC). Upon completion of the UWHC program, you will have earned your B.S. in Medical Science from Edgewood College, and will be eligible to become a certified medical sonographer.

Radiologic technologists perform diagnostic imaging examinations and work under the guidance of radiologists. They use multiple kinds of ionizing radiation to identify and/or treat disease and to diagnose medical problems.

As a Medical Sciences major with a radiography concentration, you’ll complete three years of undergraduate study at Edgewood College. You’ll then apply to the School of Radiologic Technology in the fall semester of your junior year. If admitted to this highly competitive program, you’ll complete two additional years at the University of Wisconsin Hospitals and Clinics (UWHC). Upon completion of the UWHC program, you will have earned a B.S. in Medical Science from Edgewood College, and you’ll be eligible to become a certified radiographic technologist.

Testimonial:

I really like the small classes and one-on-one interaction that I receive at Edgewood College. After I took a tour of campus I decided that I wanted to further my education here.
