The conversion of any fellowship to practice often can be challenging.  It is our hope that this course will provide a useful starting point for this important phase of training.



    The registration fee is waived as this workshop is being supported by educational grants from industry.  For out-of-town attendees, three nights shared hotel accommodation (room & tax only) at the Silver Cloud Hotel for Thursday - Friday nights will be covered.  We will take care of booking the rooms.  In addition, the course will cover up to $500 towards the cost of coach-class airfare. 

    Up to two residents/fellows from one program are allowed to attend. 



    This course is intended for neurosurgical residents and fellows.
