The Master of Science in Surgical Neurophysiology is designed to provide students with indepth knowledge of neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, signal acquisition and analysis, and its application to the surgical environment. Partnering with NuVasive, students will participate in neuromonitoring surgical cases in the operating room preparing them for a career in intraoperative neuromonitoring.
Students of the Surgical Neurophysiology Masters program will participate in neuromonitoring of surgical cases in the operating room setting in addition to coursework. The program will prepare students to perform duties of a neuromonitoring clinician. After completion of 9 credits in the Clinical Practicum course (PNB 5104) and upon graduation, students will be eligible to participate in the national exam for Certification in Neurophysiologic Intraoperative Monitoring (CNIM Certification) conducted by the American Board of Registration of Electroencephalographic and Evoked Potential Technologists (ABRET).
