Virtual Journal Club

In line with its educational mission, the INS, with its Young Neuromodulator and International Women in Neuromodulation committees, has inaugurated the Virtual Journal Club to offer an objective, non-commercial platform for discussing timely studies of neuromodulation techniques and clinical practice. Many articles will come from Neuromodulation: Technology at the Neural Interface, the official journal of the INS. CME credit is available to members who participate in the live event. Each club session will be recorded and made available on the INS members' website for later viewing.
