Lyon Hands-On Course
 

Lyon Hands-On Course

The first course took place in June 2012 and it was very successful. Since then two courses per year have been organised, normally one in January and one in June.

Course dates: 13 - 17 January 2020

Programme: The preliminary programme is now available.

Venue: Département Universitaire d'Anatomie, Faculté de Médecine Lyon Est, 8 avenue Rockefeller, 69373 Lyon Cedex 08 

Target audience: The course is particularly appropriate for those at the level of the third year of the EANS Training Course. Recently qualified neurosurgeons, those still in training, and anyone else looking to refine their skills will learn a great deal from the course.

PRE-REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN! Please contact martina.degregorio@eans.org to pre-register for this course.

Registration fees will be available soon.

The registration fee includes all tuition costs, subsistence during the course (coffee breaks and lunches) and the hotel accommodation (check-in on the 13th of January, check out on the 17th of January).

The capacity of the course is 20 participants, which allows a ratio of two participants per cadaver. The programme comprises both cranial and spinal approaches and endoscopy techniques of neurosurgery.

There are approximately 10 faculty members, roughly half of whom are regular EANS faculty. The rest are expert local teachers, with considerable experience of teaching on similar cadaver courses.

We believe that Lyon is an excellent venue for our Hands-On course. The University Hospital has considerable experience and expertise in this field, and the city is easily accessible by both air and rail.

Four nights' accommodation is included in the course fee, and will be booked by the EANS on your behalf. The address of the hotel is:

Lagrange City Apparthotel 
Lyon Lumiere
81-85, cours Albert Thomas 
69003 LYON

Programme

The programme comprises both cranial and spinal approaches and endoscopy techniques of neurosurgery. The emphasis is very much on practical skills, but with an excellent foundation of theory to support this. Participants are given reference sheets for the practical sessions, and the faculty:participant ratio means that help and advice is always at hand.

All faculty have extensive teaching experience, particularly with regard to cadaver courses. As is the standard for EANS courses, approximately half of the faculty are EANS teachers, which means they undergo regular appraisals to ensure the quality of our provision.
