BS in Biology Affiliated Programs with UMDNJ-SHRP
Cardiac Sonography, Diagnostic Medical Sonography, Vascular Sonography, Nuclear Medicine Technology, and Respiratory Care Specializations

The course of study for these specializations typically includes the equivalent of three years of study at New Jersey City University prior to the 15-month clinical phase at UMDNJ. Students must apply for acceptance to UMDNJ by January 15 of the same year in which they begin the clinical program. Students who successfully complete the 15-month training in these programs are awarded a BS in Biology from New Jersey City University and a certificate of graduation from UMDNJ-SHRP. Acceptance to the UMDNJ programs requires a minimum overall GPA of 2.75.

Diagnostic Medical Sonography includes general sonography, cardiac sonography, vascular technology and other subspecialties. Sonographers assist physicians in gathering data to reach diagnostic decisions.

Nuclear Medicine Technologists use radioactive materials for the diagnosis and treatment of diseases. Technologists work with physicians and other allied health professionals to provide accurate diagnoses and treatments for patients. Nuclear Medicine Technologists are specially trained in radiation safety, laboratory techniques, imaging procedures and the use of highly specialized

Respiratory Therapists participate in the diagnosis, treatment, management, education and preventative care of patients with cardiopulmonary disorders. Their responsibilities include medical gas therapy, cardiopulmonary resuscitation, maintenance of artificial airways and ventilator management.

Vascular Technologists noninvasively test for arterial or venous disease at the request or direction of a Vascular Surgeon or Vascular Medicine Specialist. Technologists principally rely on ultrasound, but also incorporate a wide variety of other instrumentation for the detection of disease.
