2023 ASNR Annual Meeting

Continuing Education Credits Information
March 14-16, 2023
Charleston, SC

This activity is jointly provided by Medical Education Resources and American Society of Neurorehabilitation.

Target Audience

This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of physicians, physical therapists, clinicians and researchers involved in the care of patients with neurorehabilitation.

Program Overview

This two & a half day meeting is focused on advances in the basic & clinical science of neurorehabilitation. The scientific program includes symposia & educational programming, where all sessions will address methods & concepts applicable across many neurological diseases. This year’s symposia topics cover different neural systems & research methods. Roundtable discussions will seek to further development as neurorehabilitation scientists. Additional sessions will educate about the methods to do high-quality research in the field.

Educational Objectives

After completing this activity, the participant should be better able to:
