President, Todd Hutton is looking forward to working with this qualified group of clinicians and stated that "the CTMSS fortunately has lots of dynamic committees that are active in creating things like our Grand Rounds, the PULSES course, insurance advocacy, propagation of clinical standards, and promotion of research to name a few. There is more to do in the year ahead however. It is time for us to update our clinical standards and I would like to see the CTMSS publish a more current document this year. On the insurance front, we need to educate insurers that the benefits of TMS do not always plateau at 36 and that some patients will benefit from more, as well as from maintenance and booster treatment. Also, we need to secure realistic rates of reimbursement from Medicare. We have ambitious membership goals that that include international outreach, and I’m glad to see two international physicians on our board of directors. Our annnual meeting is graduating this year to being its own event separate from the APA, simply because we have out grown being in the same city as them. In short, we have lots we will be working on and I look forward to a busy year ahead."

The Clinical TMS Society was established in 2013 and includes Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) providers with extensive clinical and research experience from across the United States and the world.
