AANS/NREF Resident Education Courses
In cooperation with the AANS, the Neurosurgical Education & Research Foundation (NREF) offers free courses to provide advanced resident educational training in topic areas not always covered within neurosurgical residency.
Thanks to the NREF, AANS and valued corporate supporters, nearly 2,000 residents have attended a Resident Education Course, with thousands more viewing presentations online.
While spaces at the AANS/NREF Resident Education Courses are limited, several of the courses have been recorded and have been made available online, free of charge, to neurosurgical residents around the world. Each program consists of several hours of didactic lectures based on the course topic.
Residency program directors and residency coordinators are notified of these resident course opportunities approximately 16 weeks in advance of each course and are asked to nominate one resident and one alternate from their program to attend each course, based upon specified course criteria.
