Master of Science in Surgical Neurophysiology
The Master's in Surgical Neurophysiology is a one-year program that provides students with the educational and clinical training required to become a Surgical Neurophysiologist. Over the course of the Master's program, students will gain an in-depth knowledge of neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, neural signal acquisition, and the application of neurophysiological measurements in the surgical environment.
In addition, students complete clinical practicum credits under PNB 5104 course that allow them to 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 the program and participation in 100 surgical cases (during or after their clinical practicum), 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). A total of 32 credits are required to complete the program.
