Begun in 1997 by Julius Goodman, MD, this course has become the premier neurosurgical oral board review course with more than 90 percent of candidates attending at least once prior to taking the exam. The course exposes candidates to the format of the board exam and provides the opportunity to practice answering questions under pressure. Attendees observe over 200 case scenarios presented, which will provide a broad review of pertinent topics in clinical neurosurgery.
Through lectures and case studies, advanced practice providers (APPs) can examine a wide array of neurosurgical topics. In addition, attendees can add an additional half-day of practical clinics to their training.
This one-and-a-half-day clinical course provides neurosurgical nurse practitioners (NPs) and physician assistants (PAs) the opportunity to learn common spine techniques required of the experienced APP.
