Visiting Fellowship in Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation-Oct 24-26, 2015

October 24, 2015 to October 26, 2015

The 3-day course offers intensive training on the FDA-cleared treatment for major depression, Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS).  Sponsored by the Duke University School of Medicine, includes didactic sessions and hands-on administration of TMS.  The didactic sessions with the TMS faculty of Duke University and University of Texas Southwestern cover all topics relevant to running a TMS clinical service and a TMS research lab, including: new developments in motor threshold determination, treatment technique, stimulus dosing, risks, complications and contraindications, safety screening, post TMS management and continuation treatment, clinical and non-clinical research applications, and emerging brain stimulation techniques (e.g., magnetic seizure therapy).

Cancellation Policy: The course registration fee is $2,500USD.  Payment is due by one month before the course start date.  A written notice of cancellation must be received 30 days prior to the start of this activity.  A 10% cancellation fee will be assessed at that time; after that date, cancellation requests cannot be honored.
