Outstanding Learning Opportunities for

Senior Neurosurgical Residents

 

 

Neurosurgery Hot Seat

The CNSF is planning a Neurosurgery Hot Seat course. This session is meant to prepare the senior residents in neurosurgery for the RCS examination (oral component). 5 different subspecialists in Neurosurgery will quiz different residents in the audience in the typical RCS oral exam format. At the end of each question there will be a feedback for the participants from the panel and others experienced in the examination process.

This session will be on Saturday, June 15th from 7:00 am to 9:30 am at the Fairmont Queen Elizabeth in Montreal, QC.

This course is open to all neurosurgical trainees that are CNSS/ CNSF members who must also be registered for the Congress by May 15th.
