Intraoperative Neuromonitoring Graduate Certificate

The University of Connecticut’s (UConn's) Intraoperative Neuromonitoring Graduate Certificate prepares students for a healthcare career in this rapidly growing field. Designed by faculty from UConn's Department of Physiology and Neurobiology, this six-week, 9-credit summer certificate program provides the skills and knowledge required for students to be hired into a full-time position as a Neuromonitoring clinician trainee and prepares them to actively participate in surgical cases that employ neuromonitoring.

After completing the IONM Graduate Certificate students are prepared to participate in the 150 neuromonitoring cases required to take the national exam for Certification in Neurophysiologic Intraoperative Monitoring (CNIM) offered by the American Board of Registration of Electroencephalographic and Evoked Potential Technologists (ABRET). CNIM is the nationally recognized certification for those practicing in the field of IONM.
