Latin American Course in Pediatric Neurosurgery (LACPN)

March 6, 2018 — March 9, 2018

Lagoa Santa (near Belo Horizonte), Brazil



The aim of this course is to promote the development of Pediatric Neurosurgery through the education and training of residents and practicing neurosurgeon.

Designed to cover the major fields in Pediatric Neurosurgery, the scientific program is divided into annual courses over a 3-year cycle, with each annual course based on a four-day program divided in morning sessions comprising lectures and case discussions, as well as afternoon sessions with lectures, videos, “hands-on” and “solve a case” sessions. 

An official certificate of completion is awarded to those who attend the full cycle of courses. 
The Latin-American course is held in March/April, the European in May/June and the Asian-Pacific in October/November.   

Ultimately, the aim is to have in each of the three regions (Europe, Latin-America, and Asia-Pacific) the same series of lectures and workshops, conducted in the same language, with the same organizational frame. In any each year the course held in a given region will be asynchronous in cycle to that held in the other regions.
