Co-directed by three area Neurosurgical Training Programs: the Perelman School of Medicine at University of Pennsylvania, Sidney Kimmel Medical College at Thomas Jefferson University, and the Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University, this year’s symposium will be devoted to the following theme: The Future of Neurosurgery is Now.

Four keynote addresses by Ziya L. Gokaslan, MD, FAANS, FACS, Guy M. McKhann II, MD, Alfredo Quinones-Hinojosa, MD, and Gregory J. Zipfel, MD will carry forward the theme by discussing challenges and current controversies in spine, functional neurosurgery, neuro-oncology, and neurovascular surgery.  Panel discussions on the futures of these four areas will be explored.  Each panel will examine how advances in these disciplines can significantly impact neurosurgical practice. 

Additionally, a resident research competition will provide an analytical review of current research endeavors.

This course is designed for all specialists working in neurosurgery: practicing physicians, nurses, fellows and residents.
