Neuroscience Offers New Educational Opportunity: Currently Recruiting for 2011 Class

A new allied health training program for electroneurodiagnostic (END) technologists will be offered next year at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, and the program is currently recruiting for its inaugural class to start in January 2011.

Candidates must have or be working toward an associate’s or bachelor’s degree. Classes will be small and competitive.

The 18-month program is based on curriculum developed by the American Society of END Technologists and clinical rotations that will focus principally on EEG.

The program will also provide experience in long term monitoring, nerve conduction studies, somatosensory evoked potentials, visual evoked potentials, intraoperative neuromonitoring and polysomnogram.

Graduates of the program who have an associate’s degree will be eligible to take the EEG registry exam, administered by the American Board of Registration of Electroencephalographic and Evoked Potential Technologists.
