Short Courses

Executive Education Program in Neuromodulation (EEPIN)

The William Harvey Research Institute was founded by the Nobel Laureate Sir John Vane in 1986 at the picturesque Charterhouse Square campus, Queen Mary University, London where we have state-of the art laboratories, a Genome Centre, Protein Analysis Unit and a Clinical Research Centre enabling us to translate observations at the bench into clinical study.

The Executive Education Program in Neuromodulation (EEPIN) provides an understanding of basic essential knowledge with further updates on this ever-emerging field. The programme is designed to ensure that course participants acquire reasonable understanding and skills to advance and promote knowledge in neuromodulation and develop their skills to understand the newer waveforms and modalities currently available.

This course is fully online and the curriculum will be covered in a ‘taught course’ of four days across two weeks. Teaching will be in the form of lectures from an international faculty, to develop the foundation for further advanced studies in neuromodulation. At the end of the course the successful candidate will receive a certificate of completion of Executive Education Program in Neuromodulation from William Harvey Research Institute, QMUL.

4 days sessions will be as follows:

  • Anatomy and Neurophysiology related to SCS
  • Physics of waveform
  • Indications of neuromodulation (Axial pain, CRPS, Refractory Angina, Migraine & Cluster headache)
  • Patient selection and Multidisciplinary team (MDT) approach
  • Radiological assessment of surgical targets Procedural skills and video demonstrations
  • Software developments and programming of devices Complications and intra and postoperative troubleshooting Functional neurosurgery: Deep Brain
  • Stimulation (role and indications)
  • Intra thecal drug delivery: advanced “Non cancer and Cancer” pain management
  • Evidence based practice: Critical analysis of publications

£1,950 *Bursaries are available.

  • 20th-21st September 2021
