The IOM Academy
An ABRET Approved, Pathway IV, Formal Education Program in Intraoperative Neurophysiologic Monitoring
About The Academy
A Passion for Education & Training
Intraoperative Neurophysiologic Monitoring is a specialty niche in medicine that is unknown to most in the general public and to many in the medical field. The focus of IOM is to monitor neurological structures at risk during specific surgeries and to alert the surgeon to untoward changes in the function of said structures. The ultimate goal is to provided an early alert to changes and to prevent permanent neurological injury. IOM is also utilized to identify neurological structures, such as a cranial nerve surrounded by tumor tissue, thereby providing crucial information to the surgeon.
Here, at The IOM Academy, we provide an immersive training program that addresses both the academic and clinical skills needed to professionally perform intraoperative neurophysiologic monitoring. The curriculum intensely focuses on academics that far too often are missing or incomplete in most training programs in the industry. The rush to create revenue generators has often created worst-case scenarios for the patient, the surgeon, and the hospitals they serve.
At The IOM Academy we utilize our decades of academic and clinical training experience to properly prepare technologists for the rigors of the OR. We are extremely proud of our students and staff who are always eager to learn, create, and grow together.
