Electroneurodiagnostic Technology, AAS


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Academic Programs

Electroneurodiagnostic (END) Technologists record and study the science of the electrical activity of the brain and spinal activity. Working with both doctors and patients, END technologists develop a good rapport with patients, comforting them during procedures. They understand neurophysiology and recognize normal and abnormal electrical activity.

Electroneurodiagnostic Technologists are responsible for preparing patients for procedures such as Electroencephalograms (EEG), Polysomnograms (PSG), and Evoked Potentials (EP). END Technologists obtain medical histories of patients, record electrical potentials, calculate results of tests, maintain medical equipment, and may work with specific treatments.

Clinical Affiliation: Students will be placed in a clinical affiliation for 7 months in medical centers throughout the Region. If a student does not complete specialty ENDT classes in three consecutive semesters, faculty and administration will determine whether courses must be repeated before enrolling in clinical.

Background checks and drug screenings are required for this program.

  • Bring Your Own Laptop (BYOL) (You can either purchase a laptop on your own or purchase one from the STI Support Center. Estimated 750.00 for laptop.)
