This comprehensive course is designed to provide neurosurgery residents unsure about their interest in endovascular neurosurgery an opportunity to use hands-on simulators and models to better understand the technical aspects of endovascular neurosurgery under close instruction in basic and advanced endovascular techniques. This experience will also facilitate a high degree of mentorship with acknowledged leaders in the field.

Learning Objectives: After completing this educational activity, participants should be able to:
  • Explain the components of a dual-trained endovascular neurosurgeon’s practice.
  • Distinguish the basic skill set in regards to CV anatomy and catheter manipulation on simulator and flow model training.
  • Examine how dual-trained neurosurgeons use their open and endovascular skill sets to evaluate and treat CV disease.
