Technologists record electrical activity arising from the brain, spinal cord, peripheral nerves or somatosensory systems using a variety of techniques and equipment. Technologists also prepare the patients for procedures, record electrical potentials, obtain medical histories, calculate results and maintain equipment. They work with specially trained physicians who interpret the data and provide clinical impressions.
The Electroneurodiagnostic Technology program at Scott Community College is a two-year, full-time program admitting a limited number of students in the fall of every year. Students in the pre-END category may attend part-time but once accepted into the program the curriculum usually requires full-time participation.
Classroom instruction is coupled with supervised clinical experiences at local hospitals. Students in the program can expect to spend approximately 30 hours per week in class or clinic and another 10-20 hours studying.
The Electroneurodiagnostic Technology program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (www.caahep.org) upon the recommendation of the Coa-END Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs, 1361 Park Street, Clearwater, FL 33756; 727-210-2350.
