2013 Epilepsy Symposium

About the Symposium

It is important for caregivers to be equipped with the tools and knowledge base regarding neuromdoulary interventions such as the Vagal Nerve Stimulation (VNS). The purpose of this symposium is to help develop and enhance the knowledge, skills and professional performance of physicians as well as other health care professionals by familiarizing them with the device and its application.

During this Symposium, expert clinicians and researchers in the field of VNS will lecture on recent advances and the latest findings on an array of topics related to VNS.

This Symposium is designed for residents, fellows, neurologists, epileptologists, neurosurgeons, neuropsychologists, biomedical engineers, pediatricians, nurses, nurse practitioners, and EEG/Intraoperative Monitoring Technicians.


The George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
