Polysomnographic Technologists perform and score overnight sleep studies which lead to identification and treatment of sleep disorders. The large majority of a PSG Tech’s work is completed overnight. Along with sleep studies, work includes much patient interaction and patient education.
About Our Program
Oregon Tech’s Polysomnography program was the first of its kind, and it continues to lead the way in Polysomnographic education. Our graduates exceed a 95% pass rate of the national board exam (RPSGT) – far above the national average of less than 65%. Graduates have not struggled to find employment and are well prepared for careers in the growing field of sleep.
Students are trained by highly skilled technologists across the nation. Clinical coursework is completed in a fully-equipped accredited sleep lab in or near the student’s residence rather than a typical classroom lab setting.
Students may also want to consider the Associate of Applied Science in Sleep Health or the Bachelor of Science in Health Care Management.
