Do you need accreditation in Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) or want to apply TMS in your clinic or research?

TMS is a non-invasive brain stimulation technique to treat depression and other psychiatric disorders. The courses below aim to teach the theory and practice of rTMS to health professionals and researchers who wish to apply TMS in their clinics and/or research.

Accreditation and provision of TMS

The microcredentials can be taken as stand alone courses, however in order to become fully accredited, both courses must be registered for and completed independently.
From 1 May 2022, psychiatrists are required by RANZCP to complete a rTMS training course. To complete the RANZCP endorsed course, psychiatrists must complete both microcredentials and 10 hours of supervised practice.

This course has been endorsed by the RANZCP as CPD activity code: ED000061, and each hour of participation can be claimed under Accredited Group Learning Activity (Section 4.1).
