Neurodiagnostic technologist training at Mayo Clinic

The Clinical Neurophysiology Technology Program at Mayo Clinic offers the best accredited neurodiagnostic and polysomnographic technologist training in the area. You will learn about the function and disorders of the nervous system, as well as the principles and practical applications of neurodiagnostic and polysomnographic testing.

Program highlights include:

  • One of the only programs to train in five modalities, including EEG, nerve conduction studies (NCS), sleep studies (PSG), evoked potentials, and autonomic testing
  • Training at one of the best health care facilities in the world
  • Small-class sizes, where your instructors know you by name
  • A curriculum that includes a mixture of classroom learning that includes hands-on practice sessions, and plenty of clinical experience working with real patients
  • 100% job placement
    • 2016: 100%

Our training is focused on developing Mayo Clinic's future workforce — meaning that after graduation, if students are the right candidates and positions are available, many of our graduates go on to work at Mayo Clinic directly out of training. However, you can be confident you’ll be fully prepared for your first day on the job, wherever that may be.
