NREF Resident Education

In cooperation with the AANS, the NREF offers free Resident Education Courses to provide advanced training in areas not always covered within neurosurgical residency. Over 2,000 residents and fellows have attended NREF courses, with thousands more viewing presentations online. Spaces are limited at the live courses, so take advantage of several available online courses, free of charge.
