Pathway to the STEP Interventional Spasticity Certificate
It is expected that it can take at least a year for a participant to complete this program depending on availability of registration spots for the program's live events and participant's completion of each program component. Because this is a structured program, all steps must be completed in the order listed above (Step 1 > Step 2 > Step 3) and the entry point must start with Step 1.
This STEP program offers 31.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™:
- Online Curriculum offers 16 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™
- Live Course offers 15.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™
Recommended prerequisites for successful completion of the program are:
- At least 3 years of PM&R residency. 4th year PM&R residents may participate but should have their ACGME-required 20 toxin injections and 10 US scanning completed.
- Some familiarity with ultrasound and EMG principles.
- A sound working knowledge of MSK anatomy and kinesiology.
