Electroneurodiagnostic technology involves recording and studying the electrical activity of the brain and nervous system. Through this clinical rotation, you will use sophisticated electronic testing equipment and gain exposure to the technical aspects of electroencephalograms (EEGs), evoke potentials (EP), nerve conduction studies (NVCs), and intraoperative neuromonitoring (IONM).
Graduation and certification
Upon successful completion of the clinical rotation, you will receive an Associate in Applied Science degree from GateWay Community College.
Graduates of the Electroneurodiagnostic Technology program are eligible to take the American Board of Registered Electroneurodiagnostic Technologists (ABRET) examination to become a Registered Electroneurodiagnostic Technologist (R. EEG T.).
To participate in this clinical rotation, you must be enrolled in the Electroneurodiagnostic Technology Program at GateWay Community College.
