Why Attend the Ultra EMG Program?  



"The Ultra EMG Program is being led by world-renowned faculty with expertise in many facets of neuromuscular and electrodiagnostic medicine. The addition of neuromuscular ultrasound to an EDX review makes this a unique course. This format offers attendees training in both topics. This freestanding course is a great review for the ABEM, PMR, and Neurology Boards." ~Katharine E. Alter, MD

"The Ohio State University has been proud to be a part of Super EMG for many years and was involved in broadening it into Ultra EMG.  This year it will be organized by the AANEM with the help of Dr. Jeff Strakowski, a Clinical Associate Professor in the Department of PMR at The Ohio State University. This session brings together experts from around the world to discuss and demonstrate electrodiagnostic medicine and ultrasound. I am pleased that the tradition of this world class course will continue.  I recommend attending this great hands-on educational session.”
