The International Neuromodulation Society, in partnership with the Neuromodulation Society of the United Kingdom and Ireland (NSUKI), is pleased to offer the Advanced Cadaveric Workshop in Neuromodulation on Sunday, 28 May 2017, at Edinburgh’s prestigious Royal College of Surgeons, immediately preceding the INS 13th World Congress. Space is limited, so those who are interested in participating are encouraged to apply now.  Please click here to apply.

This program is designed to serve physicians with formal training in pain medicine or neurosurgery, who are interested employing neuromodulation in their practice. It is for those currently in formal training programs (residents and fellows) and for those physicians finished with formal training who have a desire to enhance the neuromodulation offerings in their practice. The course will consist of a four-hour, hands-on cadaver lab, with a 4:1 attendee to faculty ratio, and a four-hour didactic/panel discussion with the world leaders of neuromodulation.  

Neurostimulation strategies that will be reviewed include: tonic spinal cord stimulation, burst spinal cord stimulation, high frequency spinal cord stimulation, dorsal root ganglion stimulation, multi-lead systems, high definition and adaptive stimulation, sphenopalatine ganglion stimulation and much more.

Core requirements to participate include residents or fellows to be in formal neurosurgery, orthopedic, or pain medicine educational programs.  Further, graduates of such programs who have an interest in enhancing the delivery or offerings of neuromodulation in their practices may apply.  The applicant must be a current INS member and must possess privileges or have the ability to obtain privileges for implantable therapies in a hospital or similar facility. A selection committee will review the applications, selecting only INS members in good standing, and will notify those selected for the course. A certificate of participation will be provided to all who complete the course.

We hope you will take this opportunity to also register for the INS 13th World Congress! A registration discount is available for students and fellows in training.

We look forward to seeing you in Edinburgh!
