  • 1. Widener University & Crozer-Chester Medical Center Distance Learning Programs in Electroencephalographic Technology and Allied Health
  • 2. University College of Widener University is partnering with the Crozer- Chester Medical Center School of Clinical Neurophysiology to offer dis- tance learning programs in electroencephalographic (EEG) technology and allied health. In these programs, students communicate with each other and the instructor via the Internet, eliminating the need for on-campus classes. All distance learning courses are offered through University College, which has extensive experience with distance learning curricula. EEG Technology Certification As one of the electroneurodiagnostic (END) disciplines, EEG technology is an allied health field devoted to the recording and study of electrical activity of the brain. This recording is essential to the clinical investigation of neurolog- ical disorders, such as epilepsy, brain injuries, stroke, brain tumors, and "brain death." Through the School of Clinical Neurophysiology’s EEG Technology program, individuals who do not have access to traditional END training programs can obtain the skills required to become an EEG technol- ogist. Due to a shortage of trained EEG technologists, opportunities in this field are plentiful and entry-level salaries are very competitive. Students in the EEG Technology program take three courses each semester for four consecutive semesters. Clinical instruction is key to learning this discipline, and students are required to complete weekly clinical assign- ments in addition to their academic assignments. Those applying for admission need to provide documentation of acceptance at a clinical site prior to registering for courses. Clinical sites are evaluated by the School of Clinical Neurophysiology faculty and approved on a case-by-case basis. In the future, additional training in other END modalities will be available upon completion of the EEG requirements. Associate and Bachelor of Science in Allied Health Students who graduate from the Crozer-Chester Medical Center School of Clinical Neurophysiology and successfully complete the EEG technology certification requirements will be granted BLOC credit that can be applied to University College’s distance learning program leading to the Associate of Science in Allied Health. Those students who also hold a registration in another END modality, such as polysomnographic and evoked potential technology, will receive BLOC credit that may be applied toward the dis- tance learning program leading to the Bachelor of Science in Allied Health. Widener University and Crozer-Chester Medical Center— Partners in Allied Health Education Electroencephalographic (EEG) Technology Certificate Program First Semester Courses: Foundations of Electroneurodiagnostics EEG Technology I EEG Practicum Level I Second Semester Courses: Neuroanatomy/Neurophysiology Basics for the Electroneurodiagnostic (END) Technology EEG Technology II EEG Practicum Level II Third Semester Courses: Clinical Sciences I EEG Technology III EEG Clinical Practicum III Fourth Semester Courses: Clinical Sciences II EEG Technology IV EEG Practicum Level IV For enrollment information, contact: Crozer-Chester Medical Center School of Clinical Neurophysiology One Medical Center Blvd. Upland, PA 19013 Phone: 610-447-2915 Fax: 610-447-2696 E-mail: Maureen.Bendyna@crozer.org The American Society of Electroneurodiagnostic Technologists (ASET), Inc., recommends that by the year 2005 any individual entering the END pro- fession must have earned an associate degree or higher and have successfully completed a program reviewed by the Committee on Accreditation on Education in Electroneurodiagnostic Technology (CoA-END) and accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP).
