What We’re Doing

The International Board of Quantitative Electrophysiology (IQBE) is a non-profit 501(c)6. The primary mission of the Board is to establish and maintain the highest quality of educational resources and examination procedures for the certification of clinicians worldwide for the clinical use of methods of QEEG, Evoked Responses, electrostimulation techniques, and other related methodologies.  


Our goal is to provide a platform for the examination of the varied methods used in Quantitative Electrophysiology.  Such an examination would establishes standards for individuals with medical and other health related non-medical degrees who wish to establish their proficiency in the proper use and interpretation of such methods.  While there are a number of other professional societies and boards offering certification processes for skills in the general field of clinical neurosciences, this Board will focus only on those methods of quantitative electrophysiology which meet strict standards of validity and reliability.  This will be reflected in its examination process.
