Lyon Hands-On Course
 

EANS Hands-On Course - Lyon - postponed to 2021

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: 11-15 January 2021 and 21-25 June 2021

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.

Please note that these courses are heavily oversubscribed, therefore we run a system of pre-registrations.

 

Pre-registration is open for January 2021 Please contact martina.degregorio@eans.org  to pre-register for this course. Priority will be given to the June 2020 preregistered list due to the postponement of the course.

The registration fee includes all tuition costs, subsistence during the course (coffee breaks and lunches) and the hotel accommodation.

The capacity of the course is 20 participants, which allows a ratio of two participants per cadaver. The programme comprises most classic cranial approaches, endoscopic and microsurgical techniques for 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 most classic cranial approaches, endoscopic and microsurgical techniques for 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.
