2019-2020 NREF Resident Training Courses Calendar

The NREF partners with industry supporters and the American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS) to offer FREE courses to neurosurgical residents with specialized, hands-on weekend courses in areas that may not always be covered during neurosurgical residency.

These highly-regarded courses are taught by world-renowned faculty and attendance is by invitation only from residency program directors and coordinators who nominate one resident and one alternate from their program to attend each course. The course directors then select attendees from across the country.
