2019 NANS Summer Series

September 7, 2019
Icahn School of Medicine, Mount Sinai
New York City

In partnership with the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai Medical Center, NANS is pleased to announce our 2019 Summer Series Program. The 2019 Summer Series is intended to build off the success of the 2018 program by offering a focused agenda designed to fit in a one-day meeting.
The event will be geared toward residents, fellows, nurse practitioners, physician assistants and junior attendings who have a strong interest in neuromodulation and would like to learn more about implementing the therapy into their treatment algorithm. Attendees will be able to participate and hear lectures from leaders within the field of neuromodulation covering all aspects of this treatment modality.

*Residents and fellows who register and attend the Summer Series program will receive one year of NANS membership for free! During the Summer Series, NANS will also draw 10 attendees at random to receive registration for one of the following 2020 Annual Meeting preconference courses:

  • Neuromodulation for Advanced Implantable Therapies: A Hands-On Cadaver Course for Neurosurgery Residents and Fellows
  • Neuromodulation for Advanced Implantable Therapies: A Hands-On Cadaver Course for Pain Fellows
