Neurodiagnostic Continuing Education Comes to Florida

The ASET Spring Seminar Courses will be coming to the Mayo Clinic, Jacksonville Campus on April 6-7, 2013.  We will be offering an intermediate EEG course, appropriate for preparing for the ABRET registry exam, and a concurrent course, a bit more advanced on LTM and ICU monitoring.  This course is appropriate for preparing for the CLTM exam or to gain an understanding of the full epilepsy surgery workup, if your lab is expanding to comprehensive epilepsy treatment.
We got a great deal on a block of hotel rooms, right on the Mayo campus, at $75 per night!  Please note that this room block expires on March 4, so if you are planning on attending, I suggest you reserve your room ASAP!
It is also important to note that the “Early Bird” registration rates are good only through March 6.  After that the rates go up.  We have such a wonderful line-up of faculty for both courses!   Many of the neurologists and epileptologists from the Mayo Clinic and the nearby University of Florida have agreed to give presentations.  And you can’t beat the location, after we have all taken a beating from winter this year!
Here is the link to the course registration and hotel information for the ASET Spring Seminars in Jacksonville:
You can also view the EEG and LTM/ICU course schedules from that link.

I just returned from my own continuing education event in Florida.  I attended the Annual Conference of the American Clinical Neurophysiology Society (ACNS) in Miami.  It was wonderful to spend three days in the warm weather, especially since I missed the blizzard that dropped 30 inches of snow here in Maine!
The ACNS program was great!  It gives me the opportunity to hear about the latest trends and research in neurology and neurophysiology, so that I can in turn, plan up-to-date programs for our educational events for technologists.  The ACNS has been so respectful and supportive of technologists and they acknowledge our importance as part of the “Neuro” team.  The outgoing ACNS president, Dr. Susan Herman, gave a wonderful Presidential Lecture on the topic “Continuous EEG Monitoring in the ICU: Defining a New Standard of Care”.  She referred to the technologist’s potential role to be a “First Responder” recognizing critical changes in the EEG and alerting the team when intervention becomes urgent.

I hope to see you in sunny Florida in April!
