Corporate/Leadership Council
The Corporate/Leadership Council’s mission to provide a forum for
discussion and collaboration between the AANS and its corporate
partners on issues related to neurosurgical education, research,
advocacy, and patient care is steady and remains a cornerstone of
the meetings.
The AANS Corporate/Leadership Council convened its annual
meeting-of-the-minds in July 2010 in Chicago. Eleven of the 19
Pinnacle Partner companies at the time participated in this day-long
gathering. Joined by many members of AANS’ Board of Directors
and Development Committee leadership, the group spent the day
discussing topics of mutual interest, including new developments in
the field of neurosurgery, advocacy, health-care reform, outcomes
research, education for residents and attending surgeons as well as
the changing face of the specialty outside of the United States.
The meeting again generated a number of action items for the
Council to focus on, including expanded annual meeting educational
offerings in the areas of MIS and visualization; developing better
communication between the Pinnacle Partners and AANS/CNS
Washington Committee; and possible support of neurosurgeons
residing outside the United States who would come here to study
specific spine surgery techniques, then return to their home
countries to be credentialed or certified.
