EXPANDING THE RESIDENCY
Neurosurgery is recognized as having some of the most challenging, lengthy and
comprehensive residency training of any specialty. But, even with this rigorous training, the
AANS and the NREF continue to lead the way in expanding and improving the traditional
educational experience by offering a series of advanced resident and fellow courses on
various topic areas not always covered within residency. In the 2016 fiscal year, the AANS
and NREF offered this training to 124 neurosurgical residents and fellows at no cost to the
trainees or their programs.
Many thanks to the faculty and supporters who made these courses possible.
