Course Objectives

Neurophysiopathology Methods graduates are healthcare professionals engaged in the diagnosis of nervous system disorders, qualified to directly apply specific neurologic and neurosurgical diagnostic methodologies on medical prescription (electroencephalography, electroneuromyography, polygraphs, evoked potentials, ultrasounds).

Neurophysiopathology Methods graduates apply the most appropriate methods for the recording of bioelectric phenomena, working directly with the patient and the equipment so as to prepare a diagnostic and instrumental programme of action or neurophysiological research programme prepared in advance in close collaboration with the specialist physician.

They manage all aspects of the work involved in collecting and optimising the various diagnostic methodologies, on the subject of which, on request, they must then draft a descriptive report from a technical perspective.

They are directly responsible for the application and end result of the diagnostic method employed; they use diagnostic and instrumental methodologies to verify electrocerebral activity for clinical and/or medical and legal purposes, and are in charge of preparing and testing the instruments and equipment allocated.

Career and Employment

Graduates in Neurophysiopathology Methods operate in:

  • the neurophysiopathology divisions of university clinics and hospitals that require their professional services
  • private general outpatients' clinics
  • industrial and commercial firms that produce neurophysiological equipment dedicated to the fine tuning, testing and monitoring of related equipment.
