EANS Specialist of Neurosurgery Diploma - Message from the Chairman EANS hands-on committee 

As chairman of the EANS training committee 2017-2019, we established a curriculum for four new courses in Cranial and Spinal surgery for residents in their 1-3rd year (Step I), as well as for 4-6th year (Step II), thereby offering a complete range of four theoretical courses and four practical courses.

The EANS Step I and II Hands-On Courses complement the theoretical training of the EANS Training Courses. Trainees who have participated in all four theoretical courses, all four practical courses and passed the EANS exam will receive a special “EANS Specialist of Neurosurgery Diploma” from the EANS president, presented during the EANS congresses.

Programme

Participants will learn essential neurosurgical anatomy, planning of surgical procedures, handling of neurosurgical equipment, and advanced neurosurgical spinal approaches. The emphasis is very much on practical skills, but with an excellent foundation of theory to support this. 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.
