Polysomnographic technologists are healthcare practitioners who use high-tech equipment to diagnose and treat patients with sleep disorders. They work with a wide variety of patients and provide services in many settings including hospitals, clinics and physician offices.
The 23-month, 79-credit program — accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs — incorporates more than 950 clinical hours, as well as courses in management, dental sleep medicine, therapeutic modalities, research methods, and various other courses on professional development.
“Polysomnography technology has been a rapidly expanding profession during the past 30 years,” said Program Director Russell Rozensky. “Sleep disorders have been linked to significant morbidity and mortality risk factors and proper screening, evaluation, and treatment are crucial to improve patient outcomes. Opening this program will help to meet the workforce needs in New York and the academic requirements of individuals working in polysomnographic technology.”
