This course involves details of the day to day work of residents and care for neurosurgery patients. We will have a step by step discussion of assessment and care of clinic and emergency patients, and what the role of the residents will be. The course will then focus on the basics of operative neurosurgery, patient positioning and approaches

In the last 20 years, endoscopic approaches have revolutionized the treatment of skull base tumors. Currently, endoscopic transphenoidal surgery has become the standard approach for resection of pituitary adenomas in most centers, allowing for improved visualization and resection of lesions with supra- and parasellar extension. Understanding of the anatomy of the sella and parasellar regions and comprehension of surgical techniques for endoscopic approaches are mandatory for successful application of this approach.  In this course, we aim to discuss the anatomy related to the transphenoidal approaches to the skull base, surgical indications and review of clinical cases.  The curriculum will focus on education and training of residents in endoscopic transphenoidal surgery. 

The goal of this course is to familiarize residents with important diagnostic and management skills necessary in the neurocritical/neuro intensive care unit. We will discuss important topics such as intracranial physiology, current neuromonitoring techniques, management of critically ill neurologic and neurosurgical patients. We really hope this course can build upon our previous courses in neurosurgery (neuroanatomy, neuroradiology, neuropathology) and integrate all the knowledge to the management of critically ill neurological and neurosurgical patients. 

This course provides a  review of neuroradiology focusing on the diagnosis and characterization of abnormalities of the central and peripheral nervous system. Head and spine imaging will be covered, including basic neuroanatomy,  traumatic, infectious, neoplastic, vascular, and demyelinating diseases.
