2-Day Hands-On Diagnostic Testing and Training for Electromyography and NCVS Studies for Physicians and Mid-Level Providers.

NVC / EMG Training - Testimonials

There are many features that distinguish our NCV EMG (Electromyography) training. For one, and unlike another leading EMG NCV learning institution, we do not use this professional, medical workshop as a hidden strategy to sell equipment or other NCV EMG (Electromyography) services. The training you will receive with Empire is hands on, comprehensive, and instructed by Physician specialists. You will receive unbiased, non commercial medical information and latest standarad of care procedures for NCV EMG studies including the latest protocols. Included with your workshop will be education videos showing detail demonstrations of the most common EMG and NCVS services you will be providing.

This NCV-EMG workshop will prepare the physician to integrate the technical and business requirements to set up a full nerve conduction studies practice in their primary care office.

The NCV EMG courses begin with didactic material covering the specific principles of nerve conduction studies followed by hands-on training to gain proficiency in the various procedures. You will learn specifically how to perform upper and lower extremity nerve conduction studies in the Median, Ulnar, Radial, Superficial Peroneal, Sural, Peroneal and Posterior Tibial nerves. Special H-Reflex and F-Wave techniques will be taught and demonstrated.

UPCOMING WORKSHOPS
DATES & LOCATIONS

During the Hands-On portion of the training, physicians will perform each technique taught in the EMG training workshop using state of the art EMG (Electromyography) equipment with guidance and supervision from faculty and staff.

The EMG conference and NCV workshops incorporate advanced training in the medical, technical and business applications of a full nerve conduction practice. This Workshop is an intensive program that provides comprehensive didactic sessions and hands-on training by experts with over 30 years experience in the field. Ample time will be available for discussions and question and answer sessions.

Your instruction will only be conducted with small groups of physicians to help facilitate the learning process. During the small group sessions, physicians will learn basic and advanced nerve conduction studies techniques on volunteers; understand their clinical indications.

After completion of the program you will be prepared to set up a full nerve conduction and EMG practice in your office, and integrate nerve conduction studies as a sub-specialty into your practice.

NCV EMG Training Courses include Advanced Medical & Technical Information and More

NVC / EMG Training - Session

You will learn to access your local medical review policy to learn the specific regulations for your own demographic area. In addition, you will gain a thorough understanding of the billing, coding, and insurance guidelines for reimbursement. In addition to CME Credits, a Certificate Of Achievement is presented upon successful completion and demonstration of the various nerve conduction studies procedures.

Although these procedures are generously reimbursed by most insurance companies, it is of the utmost importance that physicians adhere to strict medical necessity in order to prevent incorrect coding and over utilization. In addition to the added-value a nerve conduction study brings to a primary care practice, there is a significant increase in reimbursement as well.

Who should attend?

  • Physicians who are interested in acquiring the medical and technical skills needed to perform nerve conduction studies in their practice.
  • Physicians who want to increase their practice revenue by adding a separate reimbursable service. Those who require learning proper methods to ensure consistent and appropriate reimbursement.
  • Physicians who often refer their EMG cases to other specialists and believe they can offer patients a valuable medical service in their own practice instead.

Hands-On Training

Unlike some seminars, our programs are not demonstration only. In fact, attendees are expected and required to perform procedures under the direct supervision of a qualified physician instructor in order to receive their certification. The afternoon session is reserved for intensive hands on training, where our instructors will be carefully monitoring your technique and style of injecting to help improve on your skills.

Disclaimer: Enrollment in a program seminar does not guarantee that a physician is sufficiently trained to perform a procedure. The physician will receive a certificate of achievement but this does not imply, nor is it intended to indicate any type of certification to perform a procedure. Individual instruction is available to attendees with certain program topics.

Coding & Billing Disclaimer: EMT provides information and general guidelines on coding and billing for various medical procedures. These are only general guidelines and the Attendee is directed to review and follow their Local Medicare or other insurance carriers coding/billing guidelines/policies. EMT is a seminar company for CME and accepts no liability for coding or billing errors made by the attendee.
