The course is aimed at trainee and specialist surgeons with an interest in skull base surgery.The goal is to develop the understanding of skull base surgical anatomy and to translate this into standard and advanced approaches to the skull base by means of lectures, demonstrations, and anatomical dissections.Two participants per specimen. Each station is equipped with Aesculap endoscope, Midax Rex drill, Zeiss microscope, suction and a set of surgical instruments supplied by Aesculap Kebomed.The course is a collaboration between Department of Neurosurgery, Copenhagen University Hospital and The Panum Institute, University of Copenhagen, Institute of Cellular and Molecular Medicine, The Panum Institute. We are grateful to Professor of Anatomy Jørgen Tranum-Jensen and Head Anatomical Technician Johnny Grandt. Without their generous help and enthusiasm, we would not be able to offer this course.Click HERE for more information!

Dear Friends,We are delighted to welcome you to Paris for the Eleventh Annual Brain Metastases Research and Emerging Therapy Conference. This initiative is devoted to accelerate therapeutic discoveries and, to improve care of patients with metastatic CNS malignancies. We anticipate that this cross-sectional meeting will provide a deeper dive into basic and translational research and, also stimulate innovative and insightful clinical trial on brain metastatic patients. These pre, intra and post diagnosis issues of great unmet need will be addressed in a dynamic and interactive framework. Several topics will be specifically discussed like challenges in precision medicine management and, the actual role of liquid biopsies for CNS metastases patients.The increasing place of new local treatments and, combined strategies in the era of targeted therapies and immune check point inhibitors will also be addressed. We are convinced that this conference would constitute an unparalleled platform to share basic, translational and clinical data and explore new treatment paradigms in this patient population.Finally, the scientific committee hopes that this meeting will provide a fantastic opportunity to develop networking with all professionals involved in brain metastases management and, lay the foundation for future collaborative projects.Click HERE for more information.
Now in it’s third year, and endorsed by the SBNS, we are pleased to announce this year’s event which will continue to build on the great success of previous years. Managing the neurosurgical on-call can be one of the more daunting aspects of the role of a Neurosurgical Registrar. The on-calls may range from managing complex and difficult cases to the often challenging logistical issues which regularly arise. Whilst there are courses that cover neurosurgical conditions; operative skills and managing neurosurgical patients, this course uniquely addresses the complex and often difficult issues that arise during the on-call in an ever-changing environment.Click HERE for more information.

The Santo-Rhino III is jointly organized by the Department of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery, Hygeia Hospital and HEAL Academy by HHG.Click HERE for more information and to register!
The Neuro Connect: Brain Connectivity and White Matter Dissection International Course was designed as a longitudinal program to build and foster a community of practice. Offering a unique hybrid approach to learning, participants of Neuro Connect will be given access to a learning management system to explore pre-learning materials in preparation for the in-person educational activities. Learners will have access to these materials post course to act as an enduring resources throughout their practice.From October 13 – 15, 2023 learners will join us at the Temerty Advanced Surgical Education and Simulation Centre in Toronto, Ontario Canada and participate in various hands-on dry and wet labs focusing on the following: the cortical anatomy and mainly subcortical brain connectivity investigating the trajectory, morphology and functional anatomy of the major white matter tracts via the white matter dissection technique, DTI-based tractography technique and didactic sessions. Moreover, exposure to brain mapping techniques, fMRI, neuro-anesthesia, and neuro-psychological aspects will be provided. Throughout their time with us, learners will have the opportunity to network, and connect with leading experts across the field of intra-axial tumor neurosurgery, brain mapping, neuro-imaging and neuropsychology.Please click HERE for more information.
