Neurodiagnostic Technology (EEG)

You are intrigued by how the brain and nervous system function. You are a people-person and enjoy helping people feel comfortable in new situations.

Mid’s Neurodiagnostic Technology Program prepares you to become a highly-skilled technologist who performs electroencephalograms (EEGs). An EEG assesses the electrical patterns in the brain to determine abnormalities and help identify nervous system disorders.

Earn an Associate Degree in just 5 semesters.

There is a shortage of trained Neurodiagnostic Technologists (NDTs). To help address this need, the EPiC Consortium and Mid Michigan College are collaborating to offer a program that trains NDTs locally.

Why Choose Mid Michigan College?

How the Program Works

The EEG Program is offered through a partnership with other Michigan Community Colleges through the Consortium for Educational Programs in Collaboration (EPiC). Each college enrolls students in the program under their admission criteria and each awards the degree according to that college’s completion requirements.

Students in the program complete courses in an online environment through Michigan Community College Association (Collaborative Programs Initiative-EEG Program). Clinical courses are arranged through the EPiC Consortium’s Program Director in collaboration with affiliated hospitals, clinics, or other facilities that provide EEG services. These clinical experiences are developed to meet program objectives, career requirements, and prepare students for success.

Train Fast!

The EEG Program can be completed in just 5 semesters - getting you career-ready FAST.

Hands-On Learning

Learn in local hospitals, clinics, and specialty facilities with experienced technicians. You'll be confident in your skills and prepared to begin your career upon completion of the EEG Program


Neurodiagnostic Technology is the medical diagnostic field focused on the recording and study of electrical activity in the brain and nervous system. Neurodiagnostic Technologists possess the knowledge, skills, and attributes to obtain interpretable recordings of patients’ nervous system function. They work in collaboration with medical researchers, clinicians, physicians, and other health professionals.

Job Description

Neurodiagnostic Technologists record patients medical history, document the clinical condition of patients, understand and employ the optimal use of equipment, and apply adequate recording electrodes. Among other duties, Neurodiagnostic Technologists also understand the interface between different types of equipment and other electrophysiological devices and procedures, recognize and understand the physiological activity displayed, manage medical emergencies in laboratories; and prepare descriptive reports of recorded activity for the interpreting physician. Considerable individual initiative, reasoning skills, and sound judgment are expected of these professionals.

Employment Characteristics

Neurodiagnostic Technicians work primarily in neurology-related departments of hospitals, but many also work in clinics and private offices of neurologists and neurosurgeons. Growth in employment within the profession is expected to be greater than average, owing to the increased use of EEG techniques in surgery, in diagnosing and monitoring patients with epilepsy, and in diagnosing sleep disorders. Technologists generally work a 40-hour week, but may work 12-hour days for sleep studies and be on-call for emergencies.
