Our students graduate with the necessary knowledge, training, and experience to jump-start their careers as a neurophysiologist. The increasing number of surgical cases employing Intraoperative Neuromonitoring (IONM) has led to demand for neurodiagnostic professionals. Our program prioritizes giving students the support and mentorship necessary to pass their CNIM certification exams and secure a job post-graduation. A list of current neurodiagnostic positions can be found in the ABRET page.
Deven Coons, Summer 2017 Graduate
My name is Deven Coons, a former student in the Intraoperative Neuromonitoring program at the University of Connecticut. I just finished the program July 7, 2017 and thoroughly enjoyed it. I am currently in the process of being hired by Safe Passage as a Neurophysiologist. What I will be doing is monitoring the nervous system of patients coming in for spine, vascular, ear nose and throat and cranial surgeries. To explain what we do in simpler terms, if you have ever played the game "Operation", we are the buzzer. My experience in the six week IONM program was intense but rewarding, we learned a lot of neuroanatomy and physiology in a condensed amount of time as well as all the different modalities used in IONM as a clinician. Although it was intense, I enjoyed every day of it because it fascinated me. I consider myself lucky to have had the opportunity to be a part of this program. I think that this program builds a great foundation for a career in IONM.
