2017 Advanced Neurosurgical Resident Education and Training Courses

In cooperation with the American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS) and valued corporate sponsors, the Neurosurgery Research & Education Foundation (NREF) continues to offer FREE courses to neurosurgical residents to provide advanced resident educational training in various areas that may not always be covered within neurosurgical residency.

Residency Program Directors and Residency Coordinators are notified of neurosurgical resident course opportunities approximately 15 weeks in advance of each course and are asked to nominate one resident and one alternate resident from their program to attend each course, based upon specified course criteria.
