|EANS Young Neurosurgeons meeting research course|
The YN Community and Ethos
The EANS Young Neurosurgeons' Meeting was conceived as a bridge for those years in between the European Training Courses in Neurosurgery and consultancy. Strictly speaking 'young neurosurgeons' are defined as those in the 10 years after board certification.
It is an educational meeting with a strong faculty : participant ratio, which provides unique networking opportunities. The EANS believes that creating a community of young neurosurgeons, for young neurosurgeons, is of crucial importance – and not just to the wider neurosurgical community, but also to the future leadership of the EANS itself.
YN Meetings provide a unique chance to interact with the faculty as equals, to ask probing questions, and to participate in lively debate about neurosurgical controversies. They are also the ideal place to bring your own cases for second opinions, reviews, help, and honest discussion.
And of course the YN Meetings provide an ideal opportunity for EANS Training Course alumni to meet up once they have graduated from the Courses – both with their fellow trainees and many faculty they have got to know over their four years in the Training Courses.
Watch Wouter Moojen and Hanne-Rinck Jeltema talk about the importance of the YN and describe the meetings.
Our Committee represents the interests of European trainees and newly board-certified neurosurgeons. We are committed to furthering the sense of community for Young Neurosurgeons, providing a platform for making new connections, finding mentors, and providing excellent educational material. Our current Chair is Christian F. Freyschlag.

Transportation in Zurich
Zurich is situated in the very heart of Europe and at the foot of the Swiss Alps and is the ideal base from which to explore Switzerland. Zurich Airport, which has direct connections to 170 destinations all over the world, is just a 10-minute train ride from the centrally located Zurich Main Station.
HOW TO Reach the city center from ZURICH AIRPORT
The simplest way to get around Zurich is on foot or by the public transport vehicles, trams, buses and trains. To reach the University Hospital Zurich, you can take Tram lines 6, 9 and 10 to ETH/Universitätsspital (main entrance at Frauenklinikstrasse 10).
In Zurich City you find a bus or ZVV tram stop at intervals of around 300 meters. At the diverse stops you also view timetable information, the next connections, a zone map and ticket machine. You can purchase tickets for 1 hour (6.80 CHF) or Day Cards for various zones (13.60 CHF). Zurich City is part of Zone 110, the Airport part of Zone 121. You should always carry tickets with you as tickets are regularly controlled.
Hotels near the venue:
"Great meeting, great faculty."
"I especially enjoyed the group discussions. As an almost board certified neurosurgeon I like a case-based approach ... the difficulty for me right now is to transfer the knowledge onto the individual cases."
"Liked breakout sessions, ethics, group discussions."
"Very welcoming group ... Thank you for organising such an in-depth but intimate event."
"During the case discussions I also learned about the different approaches between the countries which was both interesting and sometimes a little shocking..."
