Hybrid Course for 2021 – In-person and virtual-only options available!

Due to the ongoing challenges imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic, Procirca has transitioned to an all-virtual format for our 2021 Principles and Practice of Intraoperative Neuromonitoring course.   This decision has been made in the interest of the safety and comfort of our participants.

Virtual participants will be able to connect using Zoom™ to listen to lectures and participate in interactive discussions with in-person participants and 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.
