School of Clinical Neurophysiology

Clinical Neurophysiology is an allied health profession, which encompasses a wide array of neuroprofessionals engaged in the recording, monitoring, and raw data and quantitative analyses of a variety of physiologic signals and responses. These include but are not limited to Electroencephalography (EEG), Evoked Potentials (EP), Epilepsy and Critical Care Long Term Monitoring (LTM), Autonomics, Magentoencephalography (MEG), Nerve Conduction Studies (NCS), Intraoperative Neuromonitoring (IONM) in a broad range of contexts.

Professionals in this exciting and complex clinical neuroscience field perform a variety of neurodiagnostic procedures to monitor and analyze electrical activity and physiologic responses of the central, peripheral, and autonomic nervous systems using sophisticated diagnostic medical equipment.

Neurophysiology technologists, advanced neuromonitoring specialists, and neurophysiologists work in close collaboration with multidisciplinary professionals including physicians (neurologists, neurointensivists, epileptologists, neurosurgeons, etc.), Advanced Practice Professionals (APPs), and clinical researchers. They provide a critical function and essential data for the evaluation and diagnoses of a plethora of neurologic disorders and trauma including stroke, traumatic brain injury, epilepsies and syndromes, coma, and neurodegenerative disorders, among others.

Yale New Haven Hospital offers clinical training and didactic education through its own School of Clinical Neurophysiology. We offer a 12-month General Electroencephalography (EEG) Program. There are three enrollment points per year.

Program Highlights

Didactic Content

The didactic courses are offered online via a distance-learning portal and can be completed remotely in a predominantly asynchronous environment.

The curricular content is approved by ASET-The Neurodiagnostic Society’s Board of Trustees.
