    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!

    #MajorMonday - Ceramics Studio

    Welcome to Major Monday!

    Have you ever wondered how to throw a pot?  We did!  So we took a little trip down to the Ceramics Studio and chatted with some of the folks there.  We were impressed with the whole afternoon:  From faculty like Glenda Taylor who were super-interested in talking with us and telling us about the work that goes into becoming a skilled potter, to the students who were working away, fine-tuning their craft.  Glenda even talked with us about some Art-specific scholarships that are available to students.  Did you know that we offer several degrees and specializations in the Art Department - and even a minor?  

    According to the mission statement of the Art Department:  ”Upon graduation, art students will understand the role of visual arts in expressing human emotions and needs in historical and contemporary life, as well as the power of artistic creation in its many forms.”

    Art is fundamental to the development of human society.  It allows us to express emotion, think critically, and develop skills that we might not have otherwise.  Art students at Washburn are offered an accredited education with plenty of scholarships available, travel opportunities, exhibition opportunities, and faculty who all have terminal degrees in their field.  That’s pretty rad.  And by the way, have we mentioned that we have one of the top regional art museums right here on campus?  

    Are you considering majoring in Art?  You’ll be in great company if you join the student organizations!
