Concorde Career Colleges and Mid-South Sleep have opened an on-campus sleep lab that provides diagnosis and care for the community and training opportunities for Concorde students.
The Sleep Lab at Concorde is a five-bed Sleep and Neuro facility with state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment. Students in a variety of programs - including Neurodiagnostic Technology and Polysomnographic Technology - will get hands-on training at the center. It is one of three facilities for Jackson, Tenn.-based Mid-South, and all are accredited by the Joint Commission, nation's oldest and largest standards-setting and accrediting body in health care.
Concorde, which has 16 campuses in eight states, recently started the Neurodiagnostic Technology program on the Memphis campus. In Neurodiagnostic Technology, students learn to record and study electrical activity in the brain and nervous system and could become a sleep technologist, EEG technologist and more. The program takes about 16 months to complete (full time).
In the Polysomnographic Technology program, students train to be a support team member for a certified sleep technologist or medical director. It is an 8-month diploma program.
The Concorde-Memphis campus is at 5100 Poplar Ave., No. 132, between Audobon Square and White Station in East Memphis.
