There are great opportunities in the field of intraoperative neuromonitoring at SpecialtyCare for anyone leaving college with a degree in the sciences or for anyone in healthcare just looking for a change. Julie Trott, SpecialtyCare’s director of IONM education, talked about this on a recent episode of Scrubbing In, and discussed the intensive training and certification program for new-hires.
“It’s a unique industry in the sense that it combines neuroscience with direct patient care,” she said. “We are an emerging field that is continuing to grow, so it’s very exciting for individuals who are interested in research or really just even interested in the impacts of research. And training with SpecialtyCare means starting employment from day one and getting all of the resources that you need at your fingertips.”
SpecialtyCare’s year-long, three-phase training program is recognized by ABRET Neurodiagnostic Credentialing and Accreditation Board and combines classroom work, practice in the simOR, and advanced clinical training.
“It’s been such an honor to be able to build this formal training program and continuously improve it each year,” Trott said. “Specialty Care is such a data driven company that we’re always focused on moving that needle forward.”
Here more about Trott’s background in IONM and transition into a teaching role as well as the evolution of SpecialtyCare’s training program in this episode of Scrubbing In.
