    Some schools offer programs in medical neurotechnology and have no limits on number of students. Offered programs include Polysomnography, Neurodiagnostic technology (EEG, Nerve Conduction Study, Evoked Potentials) and IOM ( Intraoperative Monitoring Technology) where technologist monitors patients in OR, guarding them against surgical error.
    The board certified IOM Technologist can easily make 100K/yr and find employment anywhere.
