New York City transcranial direct current stimulation fellowship: Advanced Hands-on training and certification

This fellowship is an intensive, five-day program designed to provide comprehensive theoretical background and practical experience necessary to acquire the knowledge and skills for tDCS protocol design and application.

The fellowship is endorsed by the City College of New York, MJHS Institute for Innovation in Palliative Care, and University of Florida.

The NYC tDCS Fellowship distinguishes itself from other tDCS educational initiatives by offering extensive hands-on experience and in-depth-learning approach, including interactive lectures, facilitated discussion, demonstrations, hands-on step-by-step exercises, individual projects, and final theoretical test and practical exam.

The Fellowship utilizes versatile educational elements from basic to expert level. It is expected that even individuals highly experienced in tDCS will benefit from the advanced and comprehensive training in state-of-the-art techniques.

The NYC tDCS Fellowship provides the only comprehensive tDCS course in the US. The Fellowship focuses on building competencies in the following areas: principles and mechanisms of tDCS, electrode preparation and montages, stimulation parameters, protocols and targeted outcomes; safety; tDCS current modeling and dose determination; good practices in tDCS delivery; clinical and research trial design, tDCS protocol design and implementation in research/clinical trials; with specific methodologic considerations for HD-tDCS and conventional tDCS in institutional and home-based settings.

Education and training will be provided by a seasoned highly experienced team. Ideal candidates for the Fellowship are absolvents of graduate and postgraduate programs in related disciplines (medicine, bioengineering, neuroscience, nursing) and/or individuals involved in tDCS research/clinical trials and treatment. Previous practical experience with tDCS not required but preferred.

The Fellowship promotes expertise in the field of non-invasive brain stimulation.
