Sponsored by the Duke University School of Medicine, the Duke TMS Course includes didactic sessions and hands-on administration of TMS. The didactic sessions with the TMS faculty of Duke University cover all topics relevant to running a TMS clinical service and a TMS research lab, including:
- Device principles and types
- Neuroscience of TMS
- Motor threshold determination
- Treatment technique
- Stimulus dosing
- Risks, complications and contraindications
- Safety screening
- Post-TMS management and continuation treatment
- Clinical and non-clinical research applications
- Emerging brain stimulation techniques
This activity is designed for clinicians and researchers who wish to enhance their knowledge of TMS and related brain stimulation techniques. The course session is capped at 20 participants. Nurses may participate in this course and can receive attendance credit, but not CME credit.
Duke University Health System Department of Clinical Education and Professional Development designates this live activity for a maximum of 20.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s). Physicians should claim only credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
