This week we are excited to be able to celebrate our students graduating on May 4th!

May 4th, 2024 will mark the commencement of five very special students that will be graduating from the Diagnostic Medical Sonography program. This year we are celebrating Anastasia Brey, Erin Wagner, Maycee Karpfinger, Sydney Altergott, and Miranda Singson!

These amazing ladies have worked very hard over the last 2 years of the program, and we are excited to see them transition to the next phases of their careers! Each student will be starting their careers throughout Wisconsin and working amongst other CUW DMS alumni!

Anastasia fell in love with OB Sonography during her time in the program it is excited she found a job in the field that she loves! She is also excited to have another position that allows her to scan other aspects to ultrasound- it’s the best of both worlds! She hopes that she never stops learning and impacts all of her patients in a positive way. Her advice for future students: everything will work out!

Sydney is most excited to grow and become an amazing sonographer and learn things every day in her new career. She hopes to help others, educate students, and become a leader. Her words of advice for future sonography students: Don’t be afraid to try new things-even if it’s uncomfortable!

Erin is excited that she has found a job with the two most important things to a sonographer: amazing co-workers and awesome ultrasound machines! In the future, Erin is interested in pursuing teaching the next generation of sonographers and working in OB. Her words of advice to future sonography students: If you love what you are doing, you will be successful and although it is hard work the payoff in the end is well worth it.

Maycee is excited for 2 things in her new career: gaining confidence as a sonographer and working with CUW DMS Alumni Deb! In the future, Maycee is hoping to improve her confidence and scanning efficiency, she learned in the program that it takes time to really understand and grasp things in this complicated field and that’s okay! Her advice for future students: keep pushing through!

Miranda is excited that she has found the career that she will be doing for the rest of her life and she loves it! She hopes to become an efficient sonographer, have great interpersonal skills, and advance in the field. Her words of advice for the next groups of students: It does take time to adjust and to understand what’s going on… but applying and having confidence in yourself goes a long way!

Want in?

The Department of Imaging at Concordia University Wisconsin encompasses two bachelor’s degree programs.

The Bachelor of Science in Diagnostic Medical Sonography (DMS) offers three distinct pathways to prepare learners to step forward into their calling as a medical sonographer: the undergraduate DMS certificate, in-person bachelor’s degree, or an online sonography completion program.

Meanwhile, the Bachelor of Science in Radiologic Technology, or rad tech program, is a two-plus-two offering. Students spend the first two years on the Concordia campus taking prerequisite classes before applying for placement into one of our JRCERT-accredited partner rad tech programs. The second two years are within the professional phase of the major and will consist of didactic and clinical coursework.
