April 29, 2019 to May 3, 2019

Course Director: Wolfgang Singer, MD

The Expanded Autonomic Training course complements the Clinical Autonomic Quantitative Workshop offered every other year at Mayo Clinic. The target audience for the expanded training is physicians and neurophysiology technicians starting an autonomic laboratory or seeking to refresh/refine skills in autonomic function testing. Participants of the program are interviewed to assess current level of education, knowledge, and experience in order to structure the individuals learning experience.

Registration Fee: $1,750.00

Target Audience

This course is designed for technicians who have no experience with autonomic testing and equipment; this group will require the longest exposure (5 days), with didactics and extensive hand- on training.

Technicians currently working in an autonomic laboratory; this group will require more focused training, use of different equipment, possibly more exposure to the clinicians for test interpretation. This group should plan on the 3 day training option. 

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, all participants should be able to: 

  • Recognize the underlying basis for the evaluation of autonomic function. 
  • Explain how to utilize autonomic testing of patients with autonomic disorders. 
  • Develop a plan for autonomic testing of patients with autonomic disorders. 
  • Assess commercially available autonomic equipment. 
  • Select new autonomic function tests using underlying autonomic principles. Outcomes specific to technicians: 
  • Perform autonomic testing proficiently and efficiently 
  • Recognize technical errors/pitfalls 
  • Identify patients requiring additional studies 
  • Identify most common autonomic abnormalities on testing
