Is it a requirement that NCV and EMG studies be performed by a neurologist? Thank you.

Thank you for the query.
No, It is not mandate that only neurologist can perform NCV and EMG studies. Psychiatrists and Physical therapists can also perform these studies. Their are few certifications, which provide rights to perform NCV and EMG studies like:
1. Certified Nerve Conduction Technologist (CNCT) by American Board of Electrodiagnostic Medicine (ABEM).
2. Registered Nerve Conduction Study Technologist (R.NCS.T.) by American Association of Electrodiagnostic Technologists (AAET).
