Neurodiagnostic Technology Degree
Neurodiagnostic Technology program

 Announcement*** We regret to announce that after taking into consideration the current COVID-19 epidemic,  and the closure of our campus, San Diego Mesa College has decided to postpone the start of the Neurodiagnostic Technology Program until Fall 2021.  

This delay will allow time for interested students to complete prerequisites, faculty to prepare for classroom instruction, clinical sites to resume normal processes, and the program to prepare for accreditation. 

While instruction and essential services are continuing remotely, we feel it is in the best interest of students interested in this new program to delay the start.  The College is committed to supporting the health and well-being of our students, employees, and community during this epidemic, and we want students to be supported.  

We will update this webpage as information becomes available. 

Please feel free to contact Allied Health Project Support Technician, Cindy Purnell at with any questions you might have. 

 San Diego Mesa College is proud to be offering a new and exciting program:  

Neurodiagnostic Technology Beginning in the Fall of 2021.

You can graduate with an Associate of Science degree or a Certificate of Achievement in 22 months and start a career in this well-paying field. 

Neurodiagnostic Technology is an allied health specialty used for diagnosing and treating 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 diagnostic instrumentation. Neurodiagnostic technologists are employed in hospitals, outpatient clinics, physicians’ offices, research centers and remote services.

The Neurodiagnostic Technology program provides theory, laboratory practice and clinical experience in electroencephalography (EEG) and in evoked potential (BAEP, VEP, SSEP) testing as well as an introduction to other neurological testing procedures. Testing procedures include polysomnograhy (PSG), nerve conduction studies (NCS), long-term monitoring (LTM) for epilepsy, intraoperative neurophysiological monitoring (IONM) and transcranial doppler (TCD) studies. 

Program Emphasis:
The program exposes students to all aspects of the neurodiagnostic technology profession. Students must show safe, competent administration of neurodiagnostic procedures. 

Career Options:
Neurodiagnostic technologists are employed in a variety of settings including hospitals, outpatient clinics, physicians’ offices, university medical centers, research centers and remote services.

The program is currently seeking CAAHEP Accreditation so that upon completion of the program, graduates will be eligible to sit for the national credentialing board exam (ABRET - American Board of Registration of Electroencephalographic and Evoked Potential Technologists)
