Electroneurodiagnostic Clinical Rotation (Arizona)
Students enrolled in the Electroneurodiagnostic Technology program at GateWay Community College may complete their clinical rotations at Mayo Clinic's campus in Phoenix/Scottsdale, Arizona.
Electroneurodiagnostic technology involves recording and studying the electrical activity of the brain and nervous system. The electroencephalogram (EEG), which records the ongoing electrical activity of the brain and assists in the diagnosis of a variety of neurological problems, is the most well-known electroneurodiagnostic procedure.
Mayo School of Health Sciences coordinates the clinical rotation training experience in conjunction with GateWay Community College. The length of the rotation is flexible and depends on GateWay's program guidelines and requirements.
Several Phoenix-area hospitals and clinics serve as clinical training sites. Students do their rotations at one or two, but not all, participating practice sites.
GateWay Community College is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission, part of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools. The Electroneurodiagnostic Technology program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs.
