Event info

This course will bring together neurosurgeons and health policy leaders from around the world who are involved in the
training and education of neurosurgeons in developing countries. These assembled leaders will review the current status of
neurosurgery in developing countries and the neurosurgical support coming from North America and Europe, identify key factors for success in overcoming barriers for the development of sustainable global neurosurgery models, identify key failures, and identify ways for neurosurgery health care providers to get involved in a meaningful way. A special end-of-day session with
invited faculty will focus on developing a consensus statement of best practices in global neurosurgery education and training.


This course is designed for health care providers with an interest in improving neurosurgical care in developing nations. These providers include practicing physicians, residents and fellows, physician assistants, nurses and nurse practitioners, and medical students. The course will be of special interest to primary care physicians as well as those who specialize in neurosurgery, emergency medicine, neurology, trauma, and surgery.


By the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  • Define the existing Global Neurosurgery resources by region.
  • Describe the needs, obstacles, and successful practices for developing global neurosurgery programs by region.
  • Implement a plan to become involved in an area of neurosurgical program development in their region of interest.
  • Develop a defined research area of interest and potential collaborations to pursue this interest
