North American Neuromodulation Society

Getting Involved

The NANS Board of Directors recognizes that the lifeblood of any society is related to the entrance of new members and the retention of current members. The society hosts an Annual Meeting, rich in content and dedicated to providing a forum for unbiased data presentation and membership dialogue. Preconference offerings include the NANS I3 Forum, which provides a robust exchange with industry for innovation to promote safety and improve patient outcomes. The society also hosts yearly workshops focusing on neuromodulation safety and implementation. The goal and direction of these workshops not only involves hands-on training with cadaveric specimens and didactic lessons, but more importantly, in specialty and sub-specialty integration. Physicians and mid-level providers in pain management, neurosurgery, neurology and urology are brought together to learn the multidisciplinary approach to patient selection, implantation and management.

These courses have continued to grow each year becoming one of the largest international courses available and brought to the forefront the integration of neuromodulation among these various specialties: reflecting a major mission of NANS; patient safety.

NANS’ major Programs are as follows:

  1. NANS Pre-Meeting Workshops
  2. NANS Annual Meeting
  3. Women in Neuromodulation
  4. Resident & Fellows 
  5. NANS Mentorship Program
  6. NANS Advocacy Fellowship
  7. Development of Future Leaders Program
  8. ION

NANS has several objectives and looks for involvement and assistance to make these possible each year with the desire for continued growth:

  1. To assist in promoting the educational opportunities for resident, fellows, and the general membership.
  2. To advocate pain care therapies to promote patient access to third payers and legislative parties.
  3. Grassroots efforts to promote neuromodulation and public interest.
  4. Work towards elevating the specialty through research and innovation.
  5. Encourage cross-pollination and networking among specialties that employ neuromodulation.

You can also become involved by joining one of the many NANS committees. You can learn more about these groups by visiting the committees page.
