Vestibular disorders, dizziness and imbalance are a prevalent but often under diagnosed conditions, significantly affecting patients' quality of life. In ENT and Neuro OPDs it’s one of the most prominent complaint. Diagnosis and management of vestibular conditions is a very nuanced and inter-disciplinary process.  However, the process can be easily mastered with expert guidance and training. 


After successfully completing 4 editions of our certification program, we are back with the 5th edition after significantly revamping the course based on the feedback received from participants of the earlier batches. The new program, in partnership with Kasturba Medical College, Manipal Academy of Higher Education (MAHE), will be called "Certification Program in Vestibular and Balance Assessment and Management (VBAM)". While, like earlier courses, this will also be a hybrid course with 11 weeks of online learning followed by a week of hands on training, assessment and certification, the difference lies in the multi dimensional approach we have adopted. The new version of the program aims to impart training based on global gold standards and sensitize participants on best practices from around the world. Faculty members of the program are thought leaders in various domains of vestibular medicine and have treated thousands of patients and involved in dozens of research studies and publications. We are confident that their combined wisdom will result in making VBAM one of the most useful, impactful and thought provoking programs in the vestibular space.
