If you are already applying clinical TMS, but
it has been a few years since you attended a certification course or received your training
you are curious what new applications, evidence, developments there are
you have advanced questions
We now offer two tiers of our all-new clinical TMS update courses; Online or at our home university in Maastricht, NL. The developments in the field of clinical TMS, and non-invasive brain stimulation more generally, are extremely rapid. Our clinical TMS courses are too short to present all that we now know, in terms of clinical applications, new protocols, new directions, underlying mechanisms of action, etcetera. Therefore, although we update our material for each and every clinical TMS course, our new clinical TMS update courses will 1) present you with the very latest knowledge and insights, and 2) will address the specific questions you have.
This course is offered once a year, in prescheduled time-slots posted on our website. This course includes lectures from our experts, with scientific background, the latest information, and concrete parameters and protocols for TMS applications. Moreover, this course includes Q&A sessions with our experts to ensure that you can ask any and all questions you may have. In the rare case that we do not know the answers immediately, we will dive into your field and will come back to you with the answers. Satisfaction guaranteed!
The course also offers the possibility for more advanced training in TMS including multimodal applications and procedures at the forefront of TMS research.
You can follow the course either on-site at Maastricht University (more info) or Online (as described below).
Online Advanced Clinical TMS Update Course.
Lectures are offered online instead of a lecture hall, meaning you can enjoy them from the comfort of your own home. Importantly, all lectures and webinars are 100% live, allowing interactivity and opportunities to address your questions. New personal Q&A sessions with our experts allow you to address any and all questions you might have, pertaining to your own plans or practice.
Advanced TMS Hands-on training is offered in newly developed training routines that you perform in your own clinic, lab, or personal space, as long as you have access to TMS equipment, a webcam, and an internet connection*. These trainings are closely supervised by our expert staff with dozens of years of scientific and clinical TMS experience. The loss of hands-on corrections is compensated by the one-on-one guidance and supervision that this online format allows. With the added benefit that you are practicing on your own equipment! The program closes with the awarding of our clinical TMS certification.
* If you do not have access to TMS equipment, this does not automatically mean you cannot participate in this course. Let us know in the registration form, and depending on your location and the registration of participants near you, we might be able to arrange a venue close to your home. Although we highly encourage the participation in hands-on practice sessions, it is also an option to observe the hands-on sessions of other participants if we cannot find a personalized solution for you.
The course includes academic sessions, hands-on training, individual feedback sessions on intended protocols or procedures and short presentations by researchers about using TMS in research and therapy.
All courses are taught by clinicians and researchers who are internationally recognised as experts in their field.
There will be individual feedback sessions on intended protocols or procedures.
In small groups individualised practical hands-on training will be provided to ensure that each participant acquires the expertise to administer different stimulation protocols and programme TMS machines.
