Distinguished ISPRM members,
It is our pleasure to invite you to our first International Online Course in Robotics and Rehabilitation. This new course, which is part of our ISPRM online Learning Platform, has been also developed in collaboration with the Laboratory of Neuromodulation at Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital. We are sure this will be a superb learning experience for you and all of the participants.
As a member of the International Society of Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine, you will be able to access this extraordinary course completely free of charge, which will allow you to be part of this great educational opportunity. Places are limited, so we invite you to register as soon as possible to secure your assistance.
Our goal with this course is to offer a detailed review of the effect of robotic technology in Physical and Rehabilitation medicine for the treatment of different pathologic states, through an interactive platform, which allows participants and speakers to engage in a didactic and collaborative discussion regarding the topics and contents reviewed throughout the course, as to deepen and enrich their knowledge on this field.
The lecture sessions will be held on July 10th, Boston time, by our international webcast system and then from July 11th to August 14th, 2013 we will hold the interactive forum of discussion as to consolidate the concepts learned in this course. Participants are welcomed to join the lecture series at our live location in Boston if they wish to do so.
Registration to the course is easy and accessible through our webpage. To do so, you should enter our webpage and click on the “Courses” option. Then you will be able to see all the courses offered by the ISPRM, choose the “Robotics in Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine” course by choosing the “Subscribe” option.
