Neurodiagnostic Technology (previously known as EEG) is an allied health specialty for diagnosing patients with neurological disorders such as epilepsy, stroke, coma, multiple sclerosis, and many others. A competent Neurodiagnostic technologist has knowledge of the nervous system and knows how to properly operate many types of sophisticated instruments. Neurodiagnostic technologists are employed in hospitals, clinics, physicians’ offices, university medical centers and research centers.

Orange Coast College’s Neurodiagnostic Technologist program provides theory and clinical experience in Electroencephalography (EEG) and in Evoked Potential (BAEP, PVEP, SSEP) testing as well as an introduction to other neurological testing procedures. Some of the testing procedures include Nerve Conduction Studies (NCS), Long-term Monitoring (LTM) for Epilepsy, Intraoperative Neurophysiological Monitoring (IONM), Transcranial Doppler (TCD) Studies, and more.

Competencies in the three learning domains are measured by various means in the course and clinical work and overall learning outcomes are documented by the graduate competencies.
