The Diagnostic Medical Sonography Program was established in 2003 as a hospital-based sonography program. The School has multiple clinical sites providing a wide range of professional experiences to the students. Diagnostic Medical Sonographers are educated to use ultrasound equipment for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes. Sonographers may specialize in neurosonography (the brain), vascular sonography, echocardiography (the heart), abdominal (the liver, kidneys, spleen and pancreas), obstetrics/gynecology, and ophthalmology (the eye). Additional education in some specialized areas may be required upon completion of the program.

Diagnostic Medical Sonography is a 28-month Associate in Science Degree program. Graduates earn a Diploma in Diagnostic Medical Sonography from JFK Muhlenberg Snyder Schools and an Associate in Science Degree from Union County College. Upon completion of the program, the graduate is eligible to sit for the national examinations of the American Registry of Diagnostic Medical Sonographers (ARDMS) and the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT).

General Education courses are taken at Union County College - Cranford, Elizabeth or Plainfield campuses. The sonography technology courses are taught at JFK Muhlenberg Harold B. and Dorothy A. Snyder Schools' campus and various other clinical sites and affiliations.

The Diagnostic Medical Sonography program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP) on recommendation by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Diagnostic Medical Sonography (JRCDMS) and is approved for Veteran Training.
