The course consists of a mix of academic sessions and hands-on sessions.
The Clinical TMS Certification Course is accredited by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME) to provide the following CME activity for medical specialists. The EACCME is an institution of the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS), www.uems.net
The Clinical TMS Certification Course is provided by academics and specialists from Maastricht University and was granted 11 European CME credits (ECMEC) by the EACCME.
European Accreditation European Accreditation is granted by the EACCME in order to allow participants who attend the above-mentioned activity to validate their credits in their own country.
Through an agreement between the European Union of Medical Specialists and the American Medical Association, physicians may convert EACCME credits to an equivalent number of AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Information on the process to convert EACCME credit to AMA credit can be found at www.ama-assn.org/go/internationalcme
Live educational activities, occurring outside of Canada, recognised by the UEMS-EACCME for ECMEC credits are deemed to be Accredited Group Learning Activities (Section 1) as defined by the Maintenance of Certification Program of The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. EACCME credits
The 'Clinical TMS Certification Course' is designated for a maximum of (or 'for up to') 11 hours of European external CME credits. Each medical specialist should claim only those hours of credit that he/she actually spent in the educational activity.

Clinicians, and Academics from Maastricht University are offering a two-day
clinical TMS certification workshop to be held in London, UK with a focus
on the clinical applications of Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS). The course covers the basic physical and physiological principles
of transcranial magnetic stimulation, presenting state of the art insights and
explanations of the latest scientific literature.
machinery is explained theoretically as well as practically, from the required
hardware components to the administration of a TMS pulse to the neuronal responses
in the brain. As TMS can be applied in different ways, using different
so-called protocols which define the number, sequence, frequency, intensity,
and burst-rate of pulses, participants gain a thorough understanding of the
benefits and limitations of this wide range of applications. This discussion
covers both classical and state of the art protocols, as well as the evidence
for their efficacy, effect sizes, and domains of implementation. At the same
time, participants gain hands-on experience with all the relevant tools and
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
clinical TMS therapies such as for depression, anxiety, OCD, tinnitus,
pathological pain, addiction, and rehabilitation. Instruction also includes
extensive lessons and discussion on safety issues, and qualified teaching staff
are present at all times.
The course includes academic sessions, hands-on
feedback sessions on intended protocols or procedures and short
presentations by researchers about using TMS for psychiatric disorders and
