Electroneurodiagnostic (END) Technology Program

Midwestern Career College’s 51-week Electroneurodiagnostic Technology program explores the scientific field devoted to the recording and study of electrical activity of the brain and the nervous system while training students how to apply this field in a medical setting.

Those who love math, science and technology, as well as having an interest in the human brain,  will excel in this program.  

What is an Electroneurodiagnostic Technologist? 

Electroneurodiagnostic technologists record electrical activity of the brain, spinal cord and peripheral nerves. They also prepare patients for procedures and obtain medical histories. Technologists work with specially trained physicians who interpret data and provide clinical impressions. They may be specialized in one or more neurodiagnostic procedures, which provides opportunities to work in many areas such as neurology and surgery.
