Las Vegas, Nevada
The American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS) presents an unmatched educational opportunity for neurosurgeons at all levels. In MOC Preparation and Neurosurgical Update: Interactive Case-Based Review, neurosurgeons test their knowledge of state-of-the-art clinical concepts covering the spectrum of practice. The fast-paced course curriculum offers participants tremendous value, providing a comprehensive review of the neurosurgical specialty and 20.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ in just one weekend.
Whether attendees are brushing up on their overall knowledge or preparing for an upcoming Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Cognitive Exam, MOC Preparation and Neurosurgical Update: Interactive Case-Based Review offers useful takeaways by way of self-assessment, personalized study, engaging sessions led by medical thought leaders and more than 100 cases that run the gamut of neurosurgical topics.
The interactive audience-response system (ARS) allows participants to submit their responses to clinical questions and view the most popular peer responses in real-time. At the conclusion of the review, participants receive a detailed digital summary of their responses to each clinical scenario, as well as the responses of their colleagues for comparison. This valuable resource identifies strengths and weaknesses, as well as areas that require further review prior to the MOC Cognitive Exam.
