2015 ANNUAL REPORT

Much of Harvey Cushing’s legacy came from his impact

on the next generation of surgeons. Physicians who trained

under Cushing created a tree of influence that extended

across generations. Without his deliberate instruction,

passing on surgical techniques and principles, neurosurgery

could look far different today.

In the same tradition, the American Association of

Neurological Surgeons (AANS) and the Neurosurgical

Education and Research Foundation (NREF) work to pass

on critical knowledge to the neurosurgeons of tomorrow.

Through a series of advanced resident courses, the AANS

and the NREF offer training in topic areas not always

covered within residency.

In the 2015 fiscal year, the AANS and NREF offered

this advanced training to 232 neurosurgical residents and

fellows, at no cost to the residents or their programs.
