AANS Live Courses
The AANS presents unmatched educational opportunities for neurosurgeons at all levels. Currently, AANS offers several interactive courses, giving neurosurgeons the opportunity to assess and improve upon their skill sets. Courses are held in various locations around the country.
The 2021 AANS Managing Coding & Reimbursement Challenges in Neurosurgery course has been serving the neurosurgical community for over 20 years. It provides a valuable coding and reimbursement education that is unique to neurosurgery. The course is instructed by a faculty of physician experts and coding consultants who are leaders in code development, revision and valuation of CPT.
The AANS Goodman Oral Board Preparation course is highly interactive and simulates the examination given by the American Board of Neurological Surgery (ABNS).
Started in 1997 by Julius Goodman, MD, this course is the premier neurosurgical oral board review, with over 90% of candidates attending at least once prior to taking the exam. The must- attend AANS Goodman Oral Board Preparation course reflects the changes in the ABNS Oral Examination. Practicing neurosurgeons who register for the full course have the opportunity to attend at least four breakout sessions specific to their subspecialty to prepare for the focused-practice portion of the exam.
Through lectures and case studies, advanced practitioners (APPs) can examine a wide array of neurosurgical topics. In addition, attendees can add an additional half-day of practical clinics to their training.
