The IMAST program focuses on innovative and new methods/techniques for spinal pathology. Online modules will include didactic presentations, papers on current research, E-posters, case discussions, debates, instructional course lectures, live webinars, and video demonstrations all lead by an international and multidisciplinary faculty. IMAST is sponsored by the Scoliosis Research Society (SRS).

Learning Objectives
