Welcome To EANSONLINE, The Website of the European Association of Neurosurgical Societies.
The European Association of Neurosurgical Societies (EANS) is an independent association of both neurosurgical societies and, increasingly importantly, individual members. The EANS has long been recognised for the scientific quality of the congresses, meetings and symposia which it organises, which include the four-yearly European Congresses of Neurosurgery, the Annual EANS meetings (formerly known as the Winter Meetings) and the European Neurosurgical Training Courses.
We are committed to providing a forum for our members to share and develop their neurosurgical knowledge, and are currently developing a range of Special Interest postgraduate courses for qualified surgeons. In collaboration with selected partners, the EANS also arranges a number of fellowship programmes and has an active Young Neurosurgeons section which arranges its own events.
In partnership with the UEMS Section of Neurosurgery, the Association runs the European Examinations in Neurosurgery, which are set at a similar level to the examinations of the American Board of Neurosurgery.
It is our great pleasure to announce this year’s recipient of the Braakman award, which is awarded to the best candidate in the EANS/UEMS European Examination in Neurosurgery Part II, providing at least one candidate demonstrates outstanding practical knowledge and abilities in the oral exam .
After a thorough consideration of the performances of all candidates the Examination Committee unanimously agreed that the best candidate for the year 2013 is Dr. Mansoor Foroughi, UK. Congratulations!
As a prize winner Dr. Foroughi can choose one EANS event of his own choice and the EANS will cover the costs associated with this event. Additionally the EANS will provide a voucher of €200 to cover the costs of any medicine related book of own choice and a life EANS Individual Membership with all the benefits that this membership offers.
As this year the overall level of exam candidates who passed the exam was high, the Examination Committee has decided that two more exceptional candidates will receive our new prize for ‘Outstanding Performance’. This prize goes to Victor Yang, Canada and Muhammad Zubair Tahir, UK. Both candidates will be awarded a 3-year EANS Individual Membership and voucher of €100 to cover a medicine related book of own choice.
We congratulate all successful candidates and we are already looking forward to the next Part II examination which will be held in January 2014. For more information and application please visit: Exam information link or contact Tereza Antoncikova.
