Workshop

4th NANSIG / SBNS Introduction to Neurosurgical Skills Workshop 2019

Endorsed by the Society of British Neurological Surgeons, the Neurology and Neurosurgery Interest Group are running our fourth introductory neurosurgical skills course for medical students and foundation year doctors with an interest in neurosurgery.

This one-day workshop will be held on the Tuesday 18th June 2019 at the Royal Hallamshire Hospital in Sheffield. The programme will cover many core neurosurgical techniques, including positioning, burr holes, ventricular access and cranial flaps. The consumable equipment you will use costs in excess of £1,000 per individual, but thanks to our generous sponsors we are able to offer the course for a fee of £250. We are a strictly not-for-profit organisation.

To apply for a place on the course please apply through this link by midnight, 9 May. We will notify the successful candidates the following week. For further information, please see our facebook event
