Program Information

Course Schedule

The courses for the polysomnography curriculum are designed so that each semester’s requirements must be met before proceeding into the next semester. Instruction is performed in classroom, laboratory, and clinical settings and via distance education. The class and lab portions of each course will be completed prior to the clinical portion. The clinical portion will include day and night rotations and will generally be 8 to 12 hours in length.

Clinical Practice

The purpose of clinical practice is to provide students an opportunity to gain experience in performing polysomnography while supervised by a clinical instructor.

Clinical practice facilities (sleep centers) include:
Catawba Valley medical Center Hickory, N. C.
Frye Regional Medial Center Hickory, N. C.
Caldwell Memorial Hospital Lenoir, N. C.

Special Note: Contracts between CVCC and the clinical facilities specify the conditions upon which students may be allowed to participate in clinical practice. As a result, students may be required to complete a criminal background check and/or drug test prior to or during participation in clinical practice. Pending the outcome of the criminal background check and/or drug test, students may not be able to be assigned to the clinical facilities which will result in the student’s inability to complete the program.
