Current Education Requirements for Neurophysiology Health Workers in Australia as of February 2024

Currently there is no compulsory education requirements for Neurophysiology Health Professionals in Australia.

Workplaces vary with their requirements for employment.  Most Neurophysiology Health Professionals in the public health sector are now required to have a Bachelor of Science with a human anatomy and physiology component.  Practical training is generally provided by the workplace (if you are employed as a Trainee/New Graduate/similar).  A workplace may expect you to complete formal post graduate studies in clinical neurophysiology at one of the universities offering this.  A number of universities offer neurophysiology content in their Master of Science of Biomedical Science Courses.

Central Queensland University offers a Bachelor of Medical Science (Clinical Measurement) which incorporates Clinical Neurophysiology into their Undergraduate degree.

Swinburne University of Technology, Melbourne offers a Bachelor of Health Science with majors in Clinical Technologies and Neuroscience.

ANSA Inc. now offers the Competency Skills Assessment Tools:  Perform EEG (Basic) and is available to members and non members from October 2019.  This will provided the candidate with appropriate practical competence recognition as is required for Accredited Membership of ANSA Inc.  See Guideline for Competency Skills Assessment Tools: Perform EEG (basic) on the ANSA Inc.
