Young Neuromodulators Committee

This committee's members will engage and serve as mentors to those who are new to neuromodulation to nurture the future of the field.


What is the purpose of the Young Neuromodulators Committee?
The Committee encourages INS members to serve as mentors to those who are new to neuromodulation, in order to promote safe, efficacious, and collaborative clinical and research efforts as we nurture the future of the field.

Who may participate in the Young Neuromodulators?
The INS Young Neuromodulator Committee is pleased to provide this means for members around the globe to connect. All members may participate, either as a mentee seeking to increase knowledge of the discipline, or as a mentor willing to engage with physicians new to the discipline.

What activities are sponsored by the Young Neuromodulators?
Networking Events: Young Neuromodulators have an opportunity to network during receptions at the biennial congress and at chapter meetings.

Mentorship Program: A mentor/mentee program is available to chapter / INS members. The INS Board and members of the Young Neuromodulators and International Women in Neuromodulation committees will pair mentee applicants, who are in training or early autonomous practice, with more experienced colleagues to serve as mentors. Mentoring pairs are expected to communicate quarterly to discuss important topics in the field of implantable technologies, best practices, clinical management and career development. The program is industry neutral and aims to provide supplemental enrichment to expand and enhance neuromodulation practice.

Virtual Journal Club: This program offers an opportunity to INS members to participate in thoughtful discussions with leaders in the field on the latest neuromodulation research published in Neuromodulation: Technology at the Neural Interface and other seminal publications. CME credit is available to members who attend the live event. Each virtual journal club will be recorded and posted to the members’ website after the event, though CME credit is only available for members who log in to the live event.
