ADVANCING AND IMPROVING EDUCATION
FOR NEUROSURGEONS AT EVERY LEVEL
T
oday’s neurosurgical practitioners require and demand educational offerings that not only help them stay
on the cutting edge of the specialty, but also keep them on top of the ever-changing business of health
care. The AANS continues to set the standard in its innovative approach to providing the best continuing
medical education (CME) activities for neurosurgeons and other health-care professionals within the specialty.
In FY13, the AANS was proud to offer in excess of 100 CME educational activities, providing users with a plethora
of CME-accredited courses to help them meet licensure requirements, AANS membership requirements, and
Board certification and Maintenance of Certification needs. During FY13, the AANS offered nine directly sponsored
CME courses as well as 21 jointly sponsored CME events. In addition, the AANS nearly doubled the number of
resident-education courses from the previous fiscal year, hosting some nine resident-education events in FY13 as
it innovatively pressed forward with unparalleled neurosurgical educational programming.
During the 2013 fiscal year, the AANS developed new enhancements to its educational sessions that expanded the
organization’s reach and ability to assist neurosurgeons, neurosurgical office staff and mid-level practitioners with
their educational needs; and created a new course for chief/senior residents that supplied practical strategies to
help them successfully transition from residency to the real world of neurosurgical practice.
