ASiT x BNTA Core Skills in Neurosurgery

09:00 - 17:00

This course would serve to act as an introduction to neurosurgery for medical students and junior doctors with an interest in the specialty. The morning would include some interactive teaching sessions on cranial/spinal emergencies with an additional session on the application process for neurosurgery specialty training. In the afternoon we will have a selection of hands-on practical stations covering some of the basic surgical skills required in neurosurgery with a selection of neurosurgical instruments and kit to use. The course would conclude with a neurosurgery quiz, as well as the opportunity to ask questions of the course faculty.
