Influenza update
- posted 7/06/2016
For the 2016-2017 flu season, the EKG/Telemetry Technician Program will no longer accept FLU MIST (nasal spray) per the new Federal Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) and the Center for Disease Control (CDC).  Students must have the influenza vaccination which is offered through Grossmont College Health Services or a physician's office.

Attention to ECG Telemetry Students

Please be aware that students accepted to the program at Grossmont College are required to undergo a background check and a urine drug screening test before starting the program or being placed at a clinical site. We expect the cost of these procedures may be $ 70 - $ 120. The student will be responsible for paying these fees.

It should be noted that failure to pass either or both of these procedures may interfere with clinical placement and / or acceptance of the student into his / her program.

Background Check/Drug Screen

The day of your urine drug test, DO NOT drink more than 8 oz. of any liquid. If you drink an excessive amount of liquid prior to conducting your urine drug screen, the results will be diluted and/or altered and therefore incomplete. If your drug screen results come back dilute, you will not be able to be placed in clinical settings therefore, you will be ineligible to enter the EKG program.

Program Cost

To earn college credit, enrollment and health fees must be paid to the college. A parking fee will be charged to all students using the parking facilities. A Student Benefit Card is optional.

Resident Tuition - $46.00 per unit
Student Representation Fee - $1.00

Books, Clinical Attire, Malpractice Insurance, Fees, Etc. - Under Research!
