  6. In order for students to attend the clinical education part of the program, they must attend clinical rotations at our affiliated Healthcare Partner sites. OSU-OKC must uphold specific vaccination requirements that are mandated by our affiliation contracts with our Healthcare Partners. These records must be provided to our Healthcare Partners for preapproval of students to attend each clinical rotation site. Students who do not provide appropriate evidence of the immunization requirements will not be accepted by the affiliated Healthcare partners and will not be eligible to participate in the clinical learning experiences. Clinical learning experiences are a vital part of the program curriculum and cannot be waived. Inability to meet all program curriculum requirements will result in program failure.  
    The following is a list of Healthcare Partner required pre-clinical vaccination/shot records (NOTE: these records are required only from the students who are accepted into the program and are due to the Cardiovascular Sonography office by October 1st)
    Some immunizations require a series of shots, which should be completed by the first of October. Plan ahead so you do not miss the deadline:
    • 2 MMR immunizations OR titers showing immunity for Measles, Mumps and Rubella
    • 2 Varicella (Chickenpox) immunizations OR a titer showing immunity (the only acceptable form of documentation that you have had the disease is a titer)
    • Hepatitis B immunizations (HB 3 dose series or HB 2 dose series), OR a titer showing immunity, If the series is in progress, you may sign the in-progress form found in the Student Handbook
    • 1 Tdap within the last 10 years (if you are approaching the 10-year mark, please get one)
    • 1 Influenza vaccine – required annually
    • 2 Negative TB PPD Skin Tests (taken 2 weeks apart) OR 1 Negative QuantiFERON gold test - if there is a history of a positive TB skin test, the following must be provided: Documentation of a positive skin test, official chest x-ray report, in the past or recent, but after the positive TB skin test, and public contact release form which can be obtained from your doctor or the TB Control Center, 400 NE 50th (50th & Lincoln) 405-427-8651.
    • COVID 19 Vaccine – OSU-OKC is unable to mandate COVID-19 vaccinations of all students and employees due to recent legislation that was signed into law in May.  However, our clinical affiliation agreements state that students and faculty must follow hospital/clinical policy, which includes the policies on COVID vaccinations.  As such, if you are assigned to any of these facilities, it is expected that you comply with the prescribed policy. Students must either provide evidence of a complete dosing regimen of one of the COVID-19 vaccines currently authorized by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) or request an exemption from the clinical site. Individuals requesting exemptions must complete the required facility exemption process for each clinical site no less than 30 days prior to the start of each clinical rotation. 

      NOTE: If the clinical sites do not allow you to participate in your assigned clinical experience due to declining a required COVID vaccination or if your other clinical requirements are not met, you will be unable to fulfill the requirements of your program and will not be able to fulfill the necessary requirements for graduation.

  7. The final step in the program admission process will be a 15 to 20 minute panel interview of the top scoring applicants. The panel will consist of various representatives of the organization who will evaluate the candidate using an evaluation rubric. Each panel interviewer will fill out an evaluation sheet and rate the candidate on key requirements for the program. After all interviews are conducted, panelists rank the candidates, and once a consensus is reached, the final applicants are chosen. The remaining applicants will be considered alternates.
  8. Completed applications MUST be emailed to:

    NOTE: All application packet contents must be submitted at ONE time. Incomplete packets will not be processed.

NOTE: Admission to the Cardiovascular Sonography program may be denied to any student with a positive criminal history.

Due to high volume of requests for applications received, it is the student’s responsibility to ensure that all transcripts, and other required application materials have been sent to and received by the Diagnostic Medical Sonography office prior to the deadline date.
