Through a new partnership between Crozer-Keystone Health System and Delaware County Community College, students can now earn an associate degree in Neurodiagnostic Technology.

Crozer’s School of Clinical Neurophysiology at Crozer-Chester Medical Center has been in operation since 1973, offering students the ability to earn a certificate and preparing them for the National Registration Exam. This new arrangement not only offers students the ability to earn a degree, but also to enjoy a more comprehensive academic experience.

“This partnership has opened up the D.C.C.C. campus for students to enjoy a richer college experience by being able to access tutors, library resources, participation in team sports and extra-curricular activities. In addition, students can take advantage of financial aid and grants to help fund their education, something that was not available before,” says Liberty Simmons, program director.

Using a combination of classroom instruction and clinical experiences over six semesters, students in the will receive the training necessary for clinical investigation into many neurological, neurosurgical and sleep disorders. Students gain the technical skills necessary to operate sophisticated electroneurodiagnostic equipment in a variety of settings, including operating rooms and intensive care units.

Class size is capped at 12 students, who will take classes at D.C.C.C. and Crozer-Chester Medical Center. Faculty members have a long history of experience in the field, including neuroscience and physical therapy. Students participate in clinical studies in a variety of area locations, creating meaningful opportunities to network for future employment. Previous cohorts have achieved a remarkable 100 percent employment rate.

“We are excited about this partnership. Crozer-Keystone has a long standing relationship with D.C.C.C. beginning with our Respiratory Therapy program partnership in the 1970s,” Simmons says. “By expanding our relationship, we will continue to deepen our connections with the Delaware County and Chester County communities that we serve.”

The program is one of very few in the country that is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of the Allied Health Education Program (CAAHEP).
