In collaboration with the University of Toronto, the Temerty Centre for Therapeutic Brain Intervention at CAMH is offering a 4-day training program in the clinical application of rTMS to physicians and psychiatrists.
rTMS is Health Canada approved for treating major depression and is being studied for other disorders.
Due to the increased demand for the use of rTMS in the treatment of psychiatric disorders, we predict there will be a sharp increase in the need to use rTMS as a treatment for psychiatric disorders.
Upon completion of the program, attendees will be able to:
Summarize evidence-based rTMS treatments for psychiatric disorders
Determine the clinical applications of rTMS
Determine clinical indications, contraindications, and appropriate patient selection
Determine appropriate treatment protocols using rTMS
Determine the motor threshold
Approximate treatment spots
Receive substantial hands-on experience.
Four-day training program.
