    Department Highlight - Diagnostic Medical Sonography


    Many thanks to Doug and Mona from the Diagnostic Medical Sonography department for showing us an ultrasound!  

    When you think of a sonogram, you probably envision a mother-to-be in a doctor’s office learning about the health and well-being of her child.  But there are plenty of other body parts that can be viewed via sonogram, like the carotid artery shown here.    

    Doug himself volunteered to lay back and show us his arteries, letting Mona walk us through the procedure.  As Doug mentions in the video, the ability to ultrasound a patient’s arteries saves a lot of time, money, and discomfort on the patient end.  Ultrasounds also enable us to see any buildup within the arteries in a painless fashion that allows medical professionals to better diagnose and treat potential problems.  

    And as one of our online programs, Washburn University is committed to preparing entry-level sonographers for the job force.  If you’re interested in pursuing this program, check out the FAQ page and absolutely get in touch with our Allied Health department.  

    For more general questions about Washburn and the admissions process, our Admissions Office is more than happy to help.  

    Doug also mentioned some of the risk factors for stroke while we were visiting:  

    • Family or personal history of hypertension, high blood pressure, or high cholesterol
    • Diabetes
    • Smoking
    • Physical inactivity and obesity
    • Age/gender

    And those are just a few.  If you’re concerned about your risk level for stroke, visit the National Stroke Association website to learn more, and talk to your doctor about how you can lower your risk for heart disease and stroke.  We want our Ichabods to be healthy and happy for life!

    Meet Noelle, one of the three high-fidelity mannequins (and her infant) that students in Nursing and Allied Health programs work with to simulate childbirth.  

    Students in these programs are using practical, hands on skills from their first semester and throughout their entire education with the help of simulators such as Noelle.  

    If you’re interested in a career in nursing or other health professions, and working with Noelle, get in touch with us!

    Today, we got to meet Noelle, one of the three high-fidelity mannequins (and her infant) that students in Nursing (and Allied Health programs!) work with to simulate childbirth.  Students in the Nursing program are using practical, hands on skills from their first semester and throughout their entire education with the help of simulators such as Noelle.  
While we weren&#8217;t proud &#8220;mamas&#8221; and &#8220;papas&#8221; in the simulated delivery room, we are definitely proud of the fact that our students are getting quality, practical, evidence-based education.  Did you know that our 7-bed simulation hospital has a student-to-faculty ratio of 2:1?  That&#8217;s pretty awesome - getting personal attention from dedicated faculty in a high-tech setting.  That&#8217;s what Washburn is all about.
Look for more features from the Nursing and Allied Health programs coming soon!
