From Cranial to Spine: An Overview of Neurosurgical Topics for the Advanced Practitioner
The purpose of this virtual course is to provide nurse practitioners (NPs), physician assistants (PAs) and other advanced practitioners (APPs) an overview of a wide variety of neurosurgical topics through lectures and case studies. Featuring a diverse range of neurosurgeon and APP faculty, this course gives attendees a unique learning opportunity that includes different tracks and/or breakout sessions that allow APPs to customize their own educational experience.
