Career Description

Electroencephalogram (EEG) technicians, also known as electroneurodiagnostic (END) or neurodiagnostic technicians, are individuals who use specialized machines to monitor the electrical activity of a patient’s brain in order to observe and diagnose irregularities such as strokes, epilepsy and multiple sclerosis.

Academic Requirements

EEG and END programs introduce students to human anatomy, physiology, neurophysiology, medical terminology and CPR. Programs typically provide advanced training in EEG instruments, testing and reporting outcomes, as well as communications to strengthen skills in patient interaction. Associate degree programs generally include an internship or clinical experience.
