Licensure is not required in the state of Florida for employment as a Diagnostic Medical Sonographer. However, sonographers may become credentialed by one of the professional credentialing bodies.  Most employers prefer to hire registered sonographers because registration provides an objective measure of an individual’s professional standing.

Graduates are eligible to apply to take the national certification exams of the American Registry of Diagnostic Medical Sonographers (ARDMS) in Abdomen, Obstetrics & Gynecology, and Adult Echocardiography.

All Medical Campus students must complete the FDLE Waiver and Statement form.This form is to authorize dissemination to Miami Dade College - Medical Campus of any national criminal history record that may pertain to you.

In addition, all program students must complete a "background check" through the identified MDC agent and cleared by the 1st day of class. Depending on your program of study an additional background check may be required. In addition, prior to entry into a clinical site, some clinical sites will require more frequent background checks and clearance.

Successful completion of the MDC level two background check process or completion of a MDC nursing/health sciences program does not guarantee a graduate's eligibility for participation in the professional credentialing process or for related employment. Credentialing agencies and health care employers may have additional eligibility criteria not required by an educational institution. Individuals who have been arrested or convicted of any felony crime during the last 15 years are strongly urged to inquire directly of the licensing board in the jurisdiction in which they intend to practice.
