Dear INS Member,

The International Neuromodulation Society, in partnership with the Canadian Neuromodulation Society, is pleased to offer the inaugural Cadaver Workshop on Sunday, June 7th, 2015 in Montreal, Quebec at McGill University, immediately preceding the INS 12th World Congress.

This program is designed to serve physicians with formal training in pain medicine, neurosurgery, or urology 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, sacral stimulation, multi-lead systems, high density stimulation, sphenopalatine ganglion stimulation and much more.

Core requirements to participate include residents or fellows to be in formal neurosurgery, orthopedic, pain medicine, or urology 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.

Please note:  Due to the Formula One Grand Prix Race taking place in Montreal on June 5-7, 2015, we highly recommend that you book your flights and finalize your accommodation as soon as possible.

We hope to see you in Montreal!

Best wishes,
