Researchers, Clinicians, and Academics from Maastricht University provide the renowned European TMS Certification Course to be held in London, UK with a focus on the clinical applications of Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS).
This Intensive 3 FULL-DAY Course is industry-independent, taught in English, in an academic environment, by internationally renowned experts in the field of noninvasive brain stimulation. Training is available on various TMS systems, including additional equipment for TMS Neuronavigation, and the combination of TMS with fMRI, EEG, and EMG.
The course is characterised by a strong focus on intensive practical hands-on training. Basic and advanced training options will be available to offer both, basic training for beginners but also advanced training for more experienced participants.
After learning how to apply TMS theoretically, participants enjoy workshops in our actual TMS labs. Here they are instructed in the everyday operation of the machinery, and both administer and experience different stimulation protocols. They determine individual thresholds of excitability, and learn how to programme TMS machines. This provides them with all the tools to administer TMS in both research and clinical therapy. Instruction also includes extensive lessons and discussion on safety procedures and regulations.
The course also includes a module on transcranial electric brain stimulation (TCS), covering principles and application examples of direct current (TDCS), alternating current (TACS), and random noise (TRNS) stimulation protocols.
The course includes academic sessions, hands-on training, individual feedback sessions on intended protocols or procedures and short presentations by researchers about using TMS for psychiatric disorders and rehabilitation:
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.
