Due to the limitations and uncertainty imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic, Procirca has decided to convert our Principles and Practice of Intraoperative Neuromonitoring course into an entirely virtual event for 2020. Participants will be able to connect using Zoom™ to listen to lectures and participate in interactive discussions with our faculty from the fields of Intraoperative Neuromonitoring, Neurosurgery, Cardiothoracic surgery, Orthopedic Surgery, Neurology, Vascular surgery, and Anesthesiology.
Course directors and faculty: Katherine Anetakis M.D., Jeffrey Balzer Ph.D, Partha Thirumala M.D. and Donald Crammond, Ph.D.
