This course is very clinic and treatment oriented, so very practical for clinicians. The goal is to learn something you could take and implement in the clinic the following week. This course is part of the university’s residency program, so it’s definitely high quality stuff. When I was prepping for the NCS exam, they were advertising this course as an NCS intensive prep course. They briefly mention this in this year’s brochure, but I definitely think it would at least augment NCS prep well. It wouldn’t replace other study methods, like reading all those recommended articles, but definitely help! They have this course every year; so even if you’re not ready to do this course this year, put it on your radar!
