Neurodiagnostic Technologists are highly skilled, and highly sought after medical professionals. Their specific skill set and level of professionalism is what really sets them apart from other healthcare professions. Although there are several modalities that a Neurodiagnostic Technologist can specialize in, recording electroencephalograms is what they are most known for.
This program will focus on training Neurodiagnostic Technologists on how to apply cranial surface electrodes, and how to record an electroencephalogram. Upon completion of this program, students should feel confident and ready to take and pass the national registry board exams. A passing score will earn them the designation of R.EEG T.
This program caters to several different learning styles with classes that are online, college campus labs, and rotating hospital internships. Students are given opportunities to learn and ask questions in multiple settings. Hands on learning and direct contact with our Neurologist, Dr Mounzer Kassab make this program unique and optimal for success.
The MiRIS EEG program is designed not only to foster the skills and knowledge necessary for competent practice in EEG, but also places emphasis on professional attitudes, values and behaviors that encourage the professional growth of the individual student.
Clinical learning experiences are provided by affiliating hospitals, clinics and other EEG provider facilities. Didactic learning experiences occur in supportive college course work delivered through an online environment. Both are equally important to the development of the competent EEG technologist.
Under these philosophies, the program assumes the responsibility of a facilitator of learning. Specifically, it will plan, select, administer, and assess learning experiences. These experiences are developed to meet established objectives and eligibility requirements of the American Board of Registration of Electroencephalographic and Evoked Potential Technologists (ABRET) to complete the EEG certification exam.
There are 30 core program credits required for program completion.
A student must maintain the minimum grade requirement as indicated for each course and in accordance with the policies of the college issuing the terminal award of a degree or certificate.
Application to complete the certification examination administered by the ABRET is granted only if the student fulfills all academic and clinical criteria established by the ABRET, the MiRIS program and the college issuing the terminal award of a degree or certificate. Please refer to the ABRET Certification Handbook or contact the ABRET for eligibility requirements.
Effective January 1, 1994, individuals having been convicted of a felony or misdemeanor must file a pre-application with the ABRET in order to obtain a ruling on the impact of the conviction on their eligibility to complete the ABRET certification examination. Information about the pre-application process may be found on the ABRET’s website. Visit www.abret.org. The pre-application process can be found within the "Ethics" link. It is strongly encouraged that students pursue the pre-application process either prior to entering the program or as early in the program as possible to avoid investing time, money, and effort should they be found ineligible to complete the certification exam.
A student must complete and pass all clinical access requirements as determined by clinical education providers. These include health related evaluations, criminal background check(s) and drug screening. Failure to successfully pass any of these requirements will require that the student withdraw from the NDT program.
All policies regarding certificate or degree completion can be found in the catalog of the college issuing the certificate or degree, or by contacting the MiRIS Consortium Council member of the college issuing the certificate or degree (Program Director).
