Advanced Hands on Training and Certification - Join us for an intensive hands-on workshop featuring the FDA Cleared CloudTMS system. This one day introductory rTMS course will cover TMS theory and include actual hands-on practice sessions. During the hands-on sessions you will use the FDA approved CloudTMS rTMS machine to practice how to find the landmarks you need to identify the hotspot for motor threshold determination, and the DLPFC area for patient treatment. The course will feature Dr. Rustin Berlow, a Southern CA Board Certified Psychiatrist with actual experience in setting up his own rTMS practice. Space is limited and enrollment will be on a first come first serve basis. Please see below for more information about the course.
