CHEYENNE – Laramie County Community College’s diagnostic medical sonography program received the continuing accreditation award from the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs and the Joint Review Committee on Education in Diagnostic Medical Sonography.
Continuing accreditation is granted to programs that have continually complied with necessary standards.
The program also received initial accreditation for offering vascular sonography, a relatively new area of practice for that field. LCCC will be the first program to offer vascular accreditation in Wyoming and the Front Range, according to a news release.
According to Starla Mason, the dean of LCCC’s School of Health Sciences and Wellness, the DMS program has received the maximum five-year accreditation award for the program. This award ensures that LCCC students are eligible for certification and are receiving the gold standard in sonography education.
