The International Society of Intraoperative Neurophysiology is an international society founded with the object to pursue the international advancement of excellence in intra- and perioperative neurophysiology, to advance standards of care for patients undergoing surgical procedures associated with risk of neurological injury and to advance standards of education for professionals involved in intraoperative neurophysiology

The educational commitment of ISIN, leads the society to run a 3 years cycle of educational courses to cover the structure of neuromonitoring.

Structure of the Courses

  • Part I: IOM and Spinal Cord Surgery
  • Part II: IOM of Brain Surgery
  • Part III: IOM of Brain Stem and Peripheral Nerve Surgery

How does it work?

Participants can undertake a course at any point they wish but it is mandatory to finish the three years cycle in order to get the ISIN certification.

Kindly note that there is no need to be an ISIN member to complete the three cycles certification.

Which is the next Educational Course?

Next Educational Course will be the 8th Congress and Educational course of the ISIN to be held on 7 – 12 December 2021 in Chicago, IL, USA. The course will be linked to the third cycle, IOM of Brain Surgery.  Click here for more information: www.isin2021.com

The ISIN Virtual Educational Course, which replaced the one that was planned to be held in Kyoto in November 2020 and was cancelled due to the Covid pandemic, has included a wide overview including anatomy, physiology and intraoperative neurophysiological protocols for all spectrum of surgeries related to Spine and Spinal Cord.

How can you ask for your three cycles certificate?

Please, contact our technical secretariat: info@neurophysiology.org. It is necessary to proof your attendance at the ISIN’s courses in order to confirm that you have completed the three cycles (Brain, Spine & Brainstem and Peripheral).

Please, send the certification of attendance provided at the end of each course.
