Why Pulses

The workshop name, "PULSES," is in reference to the magnetic pulses which are delivered as part of Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) therapy. The PULSES workshop has been conducted in San Diego, London and New York and has included over 120 participants. We are excited to bring this great TMS certification course to Orlando, Florida in conjunction with the NEI Congress. While we are excited to bring the PULSES course to Orlando, we are aware and want to remain respectful to the tragic shooting which occurred at a nightclub with a similar name in Orlando over two years ago. The name PULSES is in no way a reference to the shooting that took place. 

Cancellation Policy:
Conference registration cancellations must be received in writing on or before Friday, October 12, 2018, to receive a full refund minus a $75.00 administration fee. 

No refunds will be issued for cancellations received after October 12, 2018.
