Neurosurgical Update: Interactive Review by Case Management
"Forces to consider a broad review of neurosurgical topics relevant to practicing neurosurgery."— Steven P. Leon, MD, FAANS, FACS
Look For This Course In 2014!
Neurosurgical Update gives practicing neurosurgeons, who are at any stage in their career, the opportunity to privately test their knowledge and clinical practices against state-of-the-art concepts and the practices of their fellow neurosurgeons. For those in the MOC process, it provides clinical updates, self-assessment and feedback, which enable the participant to design a personalized study guide in preparation for the MOC Cognitive Examination.
The course employs a fast-paced, supportive and interactive format to review a broad range of clinical neurosurgical topics. In addition, it offers a large amount of CME credits in just one weekend by covering more than 100 cases that span the breadth of neurosurgical practice.
- Evaluate management strategies for a wide range of neurosurgical patients
- Describe current concepts throughout a broad spectrum of neurological surgery
- Assess one's general knowledge in comparison to fellow neurosurgeons
- Review and prepare for the MOC Cognitive Examination
