Review the Electroneurodiagnostic Technology application packet for details on classroom courses.
During the core day hours of your program, you participate in clinical rotations at Mayo Clinic Hospital, part of Mayo Clinic's campus in Phoenix, Arizona.
Through Mayo Clinic's well-planned and supervised rotations, you gain electroneurodiagnostic experience in:
- Electroencephalogram (EEG neurofeedback)
- Intraoperative monitoring
- Somatosensory evoked potentials (SEPs)
- Brainstem auditory evoked responses (BAERs)
- Visual evoked potentials (VEPs)
- Neurophysiological diagnostics
Through these rotations, you develop skills using sophisticated electronic testing equipment and gain exposure to the technical aspects of surgical monitoring in the operating room.
Grading or evaluation
As you move through the Electroneurodiagnostic Clinical Rotation, you are evaluated in each main area by your preceptor and faculty from GateWay Community College. Performance is evaluated using a competency-based evaluation system and performance appraisals.
Mayo School of Health Sciences uses these evaluative tools:
- Demonstration of skills
- Self-assessment exercises
- Faculty reviews
Mayo's system of evaluation provides students and faculty with a comprehensive look at individual performance. This allows faculty and administrative staff to direct students who are experiencing academic difficulty to the appropriate support resources, including tutoring programs and counseling opportunities.
Mayo School of Health Sciences is committed to developing and maintaining the best education programs. The curriculum and other aspects of this clinical rotation are assessed constantly and changed as necessary to ensure the highest quality training.
