    On-sites and Proctorships

    On-site Training

    Medtronic offers both clinical and surgical on-site training.

    On-site training in a clinical setting covers the following topics:

    • Therapy overview
    • Patient selection for DBS
    • Patient education and referral process
    • Using the 8840 N’Vision® Programmer
    • Managing patients with DBS Therapy

    On-site training in a surgical setting is intended for neurosurgeons, neurosurgeons, neurophysiologists, and neurologists who want to learn or enhance their skills with stereotactic mapping, planning, and frame placement; and interoperative monitoring and recording.

    For more information, contact a Medtronic representative.


    Proctorships

    A proctorship training session involves the trainer observing and coaching the trainee(s) in the trainee’s clinical or surgical environment. The trainer provides verbal coaching only and does not engage in any “hands-on” procedures.

    Proctorships in a clinical setting cover the following topics:

    • Therapy overview
    • Patient selection for DBS
    • Patient education and referral process
    • Using the 8840 N’Vision® Programmer
    • Managing patients with DBS Therapy

    Proctorships in a surgical setting are intended for neurosurgeons, neurophysiologists, and neurologists who want to learn or enhance their skills with stereotactic mapping, planning, and frame placement; and intraoperative monitoring and recording.
