Best Neurodiagnostics Program?? Calling all EEG Nerds!

Postby lil_miss_sleeptech » Thu Jul 12, 2012 9:21 am

Okay, EEG nerds, lend me your ears...(or your eyes, as it were)

If you could go anywhere in the U.S. to get a neurodiagnostics degree from an accredited facility, where would you go? There's not much in my area, so I'm curious where the best programs are. I've done a CAAHEP search of my area and looked at a few options, but again, any feedback is greatly appreciated! :D

I attended a 12 month program in Indianapolis @ IUMC. back in 1973 .The program still exist . Deb Fergason is the ed coordinator.I have been in Neurodiagnostis and Sleep Medicine for 39 years.Hopefully the sleep field will hang on a few more years so that I can retire doing what I like to do.

Thanks for your reply! Izzy, were you happy with the quality of the program? If you could start over from scratch again, would you take the program over? Did you feel adequately "prepared" when you graduated?

I did receive REEGT after my training in 1976. If you need help finding the school -just let me know. I think that the program is listed on the ASET web site.

There's a great program in Minneapolis - a 2 year degree - at Minneapolis Community and Technical College (minneapolis.edu) I know it's great because I started it!

Nope - Anoka closed years ago. This is an all new program. I'm an Anoka grad, however! With Joanne as my instructor.

No kidding! She was also my instructor.
Ever in need of extra instructors? I know this is getting "off-topic".....
I'm actually employed in sleep...but you never know.

For EEG I would recommend the University of Iowa program affiliated with Kirkwood Community College in Cedar Rapids. Dr. John Knott, the EEG equivalent of Dr. Dement in Sleep really knew his stuff and is one of the icons in that field of medicine. I would look no further than this program.

However I have met very competent techs from the program out of LaCrosse, WI. The name of the community college escapes me at the moment.
