Why study this course?

Repetitive transcranial stimulation (TMS) is a novel therapy for the treatment of depression and is used experimentally in a
range of neuropsychiatric disorders.

This microcredential provides the necessary practical skills for the application of repetitive transcranial stimulation (TMS)
with a focus on the treatment of depression.

The course is delivered by researchers in neuroscience and clinical
practitioners who are expert in their fields.

Recommended prior knowledge

Relevant degree in medicine, allied health and/or science, equivalent experience. 

It is recommended that this course is taken in combination with RTMSM501 which provides supporting content on the theoretical basis and neuroscientific evidence for rTMS as a treatment.

How does it work?

Participants will attend a half day practical training session with a one hour assessment of skills. There will also be pre-reading required as well as completing online recorded content.

What's next after this course?

Future study
Masters of Biomedical Science (Neuroscience specialisation)
Career outcomes
You will gain the skills to deliver TMS in clinical practice and research, relevant for health professionals in psychiatry.
