Each year, since 2006, the AANS Neurosurgical Top Gun Competition has provided a

forum for residents and fellows to test their skills at various surgical simulation stations

and be awarded a score for their efforts. The top scorer at each station is awarded a cash

prize. The participant with the best overall score receives a cash prize as well as a prize

for his or her residency program.
