Certificate of Attendance: Advanced Neuraxial Neuromodulation (ANN) 


The purpose of the Certificate of Attendance course is to provide a platform, offered through the North American Neuromodulation Society (NANS), to educate and train physician providers on the evidence-based and appropriate utilization of implantable therapies for pain management (spinal cord stimulation and intrathecal drug delivery). The course will consist of two educational parts including a hands-on cadaver lab, where spinal cord stimulation and intrathecal therapy implantation techniques are reviewed.


This course is designed for those who have already completed residency and/or ACGME fellowship training and are interested in formalizing neuromodulation in their practice.

Registration Information

Registration and attendance at the NANS Annual Meeting is a requirement for participation in this workshop. This application must be received Friday, September 28, 2018, 8:00 am EST.
