As one of only three specialized programs of its kind in Canada, BCIT's Electroneurophysiology (ENPY) grads are as sought after as our program. Hospitals and healthcare clinics use trained technologists to operate sophisticated electroneuro-diagnostic testing equipment. As the only provider of ENPY training program in BC, BCIT plays an integral part in facilitating these processes.
At BCIT, we believe that people learn what they practice. Our programs are designed to provide you with a strong foundation in theory and practical work experience, while training you to use specialized equipment to access information on the health of the nervous system.

Modern hospitals and health care clinics require the services of trained technologists to operate sophisticated electroneuro-diagnostic (END) testing equipment. Electrodiagnostics test the integrity of the peripheral and central nervous system.
BCIT's full-time diploma program in Electroneurophysiology includes extensive clinical experience to ensure students develop the practical, hands-on skills to work in diagnostic neurophysiology departments.
The program provides a combination of lab and lecture instruction at BCIT and clinical experience in the diagnostic neurophysiology departments of major hospitals. Note: Half of all clinical practicums will occur outside of the Lower Mainland.
The program draws from a variety of subject areas:
In both spring and fall terms, special courses in electroneurophysiology, neuroanatomy, and neuropathology train students in the basics of biological signal measurement and clinical apparatus. The spring term (20 weeks) covers different areas of clinical experience: electroencephalography (EEG), electromyography (EMG), evoked potentials, and polysomnography.
Upon completion of the two-year program, graduates receive a Diploma in Electroneurophysiology. After a period of work experience in a clinical situation, graduates are eligible to write the Technologist Registration examinations of the appropriate certifying body in their chosen fields of interest.
Electroneurophysiology grads are in demand. In past years, many students were offered positions before graduation.
BCIT grads can work in diagnostic neurophysiology at major hospitals and clinics in a niched role as electroneurophysiology technologists. Salaries start at $52,000 annually. Once they have work experience in the field, graduates can seek supervisory or management opportunities.
