About Our Program
Midwestern Career College’s Electroneurodiagnostic (END) Technologist program explores the scientific field devoted to the recording and study of electrical activity of the brain and the nervous system and trains students how to apply this field in a medical setting.
ABRET-Approved NDT Program
MCC’s program is one of the few in the United States currently approved by the American Board of Registered Electroneurodiagnostic Technologists (ABRET) as a pathway to R. EEG T. certification.
Paying for College
Federal student financial aid is available to those who qualify. Eligible students may apply for funding from the Veterans Administration (VA) or the Workforce Investment Opportunity Act (WIOA).
About Electroneurodiagnostic Technologists
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.
- Demonstrate knowledge and principles to be a competent electroneurodiagnostic/electroencephalograph (EEG) technologist in a variety of healthcare facilities
- Develop critical thinking and problem solving skills to be able to analyze data during the recording, ensuring the information obtained is valid and interpretable
- Demonstrate professionalism and ethical behavior
- Develop proper communication skills within the healthcare environment
- Promote professional growth within the field and continued life-long learning
This program curriculum incorporates the guidelines of the American Board of Registry of Electroneurodiagnostic Technologists (ABRET).
This program includes 550 hours of clinical externship at an MCC-affiliated site. This externship provides a unique opportunity for a real-life field and patient-care experience. This experience is also invaluable for students to transition from an academic to a work environment.
According to the O*NET Online Summary Report for Neurodiagnostic Technologists, neurodiagnostic technology jobs are expected to grow at an above average rate through 2026. Over 11,000 job openings are expected to be created from 2016 to 2026.
As an Electroneurodiagnostic Technologist, you will be entering a rapidly growing neurodiagnostic healthcare field, which also offers opportunities for advancement into other specialties.
With additional education and training you can expand your professional competence and specialization in fields such as:
- Evoked potential (EP)
- Nerve conduction studies (NCS)
- Intraoperative monitoring (IOM), and
- Long-term monitoring (LTM)
