Electroneurodiagnostic Technology Admissions

The Electroneurodiagnostic Technology (EDT) curriculum is designed to provide students with the knowledge and skills to obtain recordings of patients’ nervous system function through the use of electroencephalographic equipment and other electrophysiological devices.

Course work includes communication skills with patients and health care personnel, taking appropriate patient histories, electrode application, documentation of patients’ clinical status, electrical waveform recognition, management of medical emergencies and preparation of descriptive reports for the physician.

Graduates should qualify for the ABRET (American Board of Registration of EEG and EP Technologists) Exam and, working under the supervision of a qualified physician, may be employed by hospitals or private offices of neurologists and neurosurgeons.

EDT classes begin in the Fall semester, and the program's selection process is first-come, first-served. Those applicants who have met all minimum admission requirements and submit a completed program application will be selected for the available EDT slots based on the date the program application was received.

    Once accepted into the EDT program, students are required to attend a mandatory departmental orientation and complete all clinical site requirements. Students will be eligible to register for EDT classes after the mandatory departmental orientation.

    Applicants interested in learning more about the EDT program and careers also can check out the non-degree Career Exploration: Electroneurodiagnostic Technology course. The four-week, Workforce Continuing Education course is offered each semester in the evenings. It consists of four hours of online lectures and four hours of in-person labs and allows you to learn the career basics. Preference in EDT admissions will be given to applicants who complete this course.
