WEST CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa., March 6, 2018 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Medsurant Health, the leading provider of outsourced Intraoperative Neurophysiologic Monitoring (IONM) services to hospitals and surgeons, recently announced the first-ever Barry Hertzberg Memorial Scholarship Winner for the University of Michigan School of Kinesiology.

In honor of his dedication to IONM and his unwavering support to his colleagues, the Barry Hertzberg Memorial Scholarship was created in 2016. It offers $2,500 to one student and is accessible over the next five years. It is a need-based scholarship for senior-level IONM students.

Recipient Astrid Swensen, from Boston, Massachussets, is a junior majoring in Movement Science in the IONM Program. "I am so happy and thankful for this scholarship!," Swensen says. "I look forward to helping IONM progress and expand, specifically through education."

IONM program students will take 12 credits in neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, neuroanesthesia, and a surgical neuromonitoring lab, plus nine credits of clinical rotations over the course of a year.  On average, students are eligible to take the Certification in Neurophysiologic Intraoperative Monitoring (CNIM) Exam to become credentialed neuromonitorists just a few months after graduating from the program.

"We are grateful to partner with the University of Michigan School of Kinesiology to offer this scholarship," says Jordan Klear, CEO, Medsurant. "It's very heartwarming and rewarding to be able to financially help a student attend this specialized cutting-edge IONM educational program that they normally may not have had the chance to do."
