September 9th - 13th, 2019
Welcome to the 2019 OSET Congress. OSET is dedicated to expanding availability of neurodiagnostic education throughout the world. In recent years we have focused on a more inclusive outreach to countries with a developing neurodiagnostic educational infrastructure. We have worked to put educational materials and courses online for neurodiagnostic professionals’ continuing education. We are working to update standards of practice and competencies to share with member societies and countries developing standards.
I have attended the OSET Congresses in Turku, Finland in 2015, Bielefeld, Germany in 2011, Montecatini Terme, Italy in 2007 and Washington DC, USA in 1995. Each congress afforded many opportunities to meet other neurodiagnostic professionals from around the world. I have come to understand that we all share similar issues and we can learn from the creative and innovative ways other countries are addressing those issues. The extra benefit is the wonderful friendships I have made with those who share the same profession in different parts of the world.
Healthcare professionals are caring people who find professional satisfaction in helping others. Neurodiagnostic professionals are intellectually curious and challenge embracing professionals. They enjoy being life-long learners and early adopters of technology. Educators find delight in the success of others. OSET organizers and attendees share all these qualities. Come join us in Porto, Portugal for an amazing meeting. I know you will find the meeting enjoyable and educational. You will make friends you will cherish the rest of your life.
Looking forward to seeing you all in Porto!
OSET President 2015-2019
