Electrocardiograph (ECG or EKG) technicians usually work under the supervision of physicians or licensed nurses in hospitals, doctors' offices, or clinics. They operate electrocardiogram equipment to monitor the patientâ€™s heart rhythm. Students in this major complete the Health Careers Core Curriculum (Technology Center), medical terminology, and anatomy and physiology. They also learn how to connect electrodes to patients, monitor equipment output, record test results, and identify emergencies or abnormalities. Additionally students are provided the opportunity to use the theory in practical clinical experiences.
