Electrocardiogram Technician

At the heart of health care

A career people count on

Few diagnostic tests are as revealing as the Electrocardiogram (EKG). It measures the heartrate, determines if a heart muscle is functioning properly and discovers irregular heartbeats.  

It’s painless for the patient and purposeful for the EKG technician, who administers the test and interprets the results.

If you want to be the one who can alleviate a patient’s worst fears or be among the first in line to save their life, Macomb’s program can literally place you there.
