Neurodiagnostics

NEURODIAGNOSTICS

Neurodiagnostics (NDTN) Technologists perform medically necessary testing, slated to assist neurology physicians in the detection, diagnosis, and treatment of patients with neurological disorders. A career as an neurodiagnostic technologist may include working with patients with a variety of neurological disorders. Such disorders may include, but not be limited to: seizures, stroke, head trauma, nerve and muscle related disorders, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, and Alzheimer's disease.

Ivy Tech Community College collaborates with the IU Health (formally Clarian Health Partners) Neurodiagnostics program to offer an Associate of Applied Science degree in Neurodiagnostics. The Neurodiagnostics program has specific admission criteria. Please contact your campus of interest below for additional detail regarding this program.

All program specific core courses are offered by the IU Health Neurodiagnostics program.

The IU Health Neurodiagnostics program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP).

Degrees:

Associate of Applied Science (minimum of 60 credit hours)

Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree programs are two-year programs that prepare students for careers, career changes and career advancement. Students who need to take longer to complete the degree because of job or family obligations can take the program over a longer period of time. AAS programs may also prepare students for transfer to four-year institutions. These programs offer education in recognized technical areas and specialties with emphasis on analysis, synthesis and evaluation. The program content, which is approximately 30% general education and 70% professional/technical, provides depth and breadth in conceptual and professional/technical skills. The general education courses equip students with the problem solving, communications, scientific and mathematical skills to compete successfully in the job market. Professional/technical courses equip students with the skills to obtain employment and to advance in the workforce.
