Short Description: EKG technician's measure patients heart performance. Using specialized equipment, the EKG technician records and then provides those measurements to the patient’s physician. Healthcare services are growing every year, and with the aging baby boomer generation, it is estimated that an additional 20% more EKG technicians will be needed in the next 3 years. Highly sought after for hospitals, clinics, and doctor’s offices, the EKG technician skills are even more desired when combined with Phlebotomy or Medical Assistant training, which opens up exciting career paths. The 2015-2016 studies show median income for EKG technicians was $53,000 per year (entry-level EKG technicians can start at $27,000, and with years of experience can go up to $82,000).
