Electroneurodiagnostic Technology

The electroneurodiagnostic technology program is designed to prepare students to perform all aspects of electroencephalography testing and other related neurophysiological diagnostic procedures in hospitals or physicians’ offices and in specialized areas such as the intensive care unit and the operating room.

The program includes general education courses, technical training and clinical experience in local healthcare facilities. 

Electroencephalograph (EEG) technicians operate specialized equipment that measures and records the electrical activity of the brain as a series of irregular lines on a continuous sheet of graph paper. The EEG tracings are used by physicians to evaluate brain disorders such as epilepsy and tumors. EEGs are also used to assess damage and recovery after head injuries and cerebrovascular strokes and to detect other conditions.  

Employment and Transfer Information

After completion of the program and the required work experience, graduates are eligible for examination by the American Board of Registration for EEG Technologists to earn the designation of R.EEG T.  

The median annual wage of EEG Technologist was $41,000 in 2010.

 

Towson University has accepted an articulation agreement with HCC to accept all 64 credits from this degree program.
