Neurosurgery Department Conferences

 

The Neurosurgery Department holds intra- and interdepartmental teaching conferences throughout the week, with Fridays devoted to conferences from 7:30AM to 3:00PM. Elective surgery is not performed on Fridays. In these conferences the emphasis is on resident education, as trainees present clinical problems and are questioned in order to sharpen their decision-making. The format is modeled after the oral neurosurgical board examination, thereby ensuring that our residents are well-prepared for this test by the time they finish their training.
