Further Your Neurosurgical Education with the NREF

The NREF is committed to providing young neurosurgeons with access to relevant, leading-edge educational opportunities.

Live Courses

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, live NREF Resident Education Courses scheduled through the first quarter of 2021 have been postponed. Visit the online course calendar for rescheduled dates and course information.

Online Courses

The NREF offers a series of previously recorded AANS/NREF Resident Education Courses designed specifically for in-training neurosurgeons. There is more than 50 hours of didactic content – available online free of charge – for members and non-members alike. Please share this information with any trainees you feel would benefit.
