About the Event
The Chicago Review Course in Neurosurgery has been recognized as the most thorough review of neurosurgery to residents and practicing physicians for more than forty years. Founded in 1973, this course was launched in an effort to provide a comprehensive and intensive review for residents preparing for their written boards, newly-established neurosurgeons preparing for their oral boards, and practicing neurosurgeons who want to ensure their diagnostic and surgical skills are current. The course has been renamed to memorialize Dr. Leonard Kranzler's forty year commitment to directing the course, and is now hosted by Dr. Martin Herman and the University of Chicago. The week-long course has been updated to include continuous quiz questions to participants and self-assessment modules to supplement the rigorous lecture schedule offering basic neuroscience, neurology, neuro-ophthalmology, neuropathology, neuroradiology, neuro-oncology, pediatric neurosurgery, vascular neurosurgery, and functional and spine neurosurgery.
At the conclusion of this activity, participants will be able to:
Discuss how to apply principles of neuroanatomy to neurosurgical practice;
Characterize how to integrate principles of neuropathology to diagnosis and treatment;
Describe how knowledge of basic science can improve clinical and surgical practices;
Recognize pathological abnormalities relevant to neurosurgery;
List the principles of general surgery relevant to neurosurgery;
Analyze the benefits of neurosurgical treatments and their limitations;
Recognize the evidence-based principles associated with neurosurgery and the treatment of pain;
Discuss strategies for managing common complications related to neurosurgery.
