Learn to capture recordings of patients’ nervous system function.
Gain skills in our modern labs and apply them in clinical experience settings.
Complete your degree in as few as 17 months of study at our Grand Prairie campus.*
Neurodiagnostic technicians (NDTs) use a variety of equipment to take measurements and recordings of patients’ brain and nervous system function. These recordings offer physicians the information they need to assess and diagnose patients with epilepsy, traumatic brain injury (TBI) and many other conditions.
Concorde’s NDT associate degree program will prepare you to take patient medical histories and help prepare patients for their imaging procedures. You’ll learn skills to conduct a variety of tests, including electroencephalograms (EEGs), nerve conduction studies, sleep studies and more. You’ll also learn skills to evaluate the results and create reports for the physician or other health care professional on duty.
