Continuing Medical Education

You are here

The Weill Cornell Brain and Spine Center is committed to education — not only for medical students and residents but also for other physicians and neurosurgeons worldwide. Our Continuing Medical Education courses cover research updates as well as state-of-the-art techniques in minimally invasive brain and spine surgery, transnasal approaches to skull base surgery,  and other endoscopic surgical procedures.

See the current list of upcoming courses, events, and patient seminars.

 

In addition to a full calendar of Grand Rounds, we present three ongoing courses each year:

Advanced Endoscopic Skull Base and Pituitary Surgery: Hands-on Symposium is a comprehensive overview of the newly emerging field of endoscopic skull base surgery, combining didactic sessions with hands-on cadaver dissection, as well as panel discussions. The course directors are Theodore H. Schwartz, M.D. and Vijay K. Anand, M.D.

Minimally Invasive Spinal Surgery and Navigation Hands-on Symposium, now in its tenth year, provides a comprehensive overview of the latest in minimally invasive techniques (with and without stereotactic navigation) for the operative treatment of spinal disorders. Practical sessions allow participants to apply the latest spinal techniques, including spinal navigation, in cadavers. This annual course is co-directed by Roger Härtl, M.D., and Luiz M. Pimenta, M.D., Ph.D.

Complex Surgical Approaches to the Skull Base is a hands-on cadaver workshop with three-dimensional virtual reality workstations. This course takes place in our state-of-the-art Surgical Innovations Laboratory and is directed by Neurosurgeon-in-Chief Philip E. Stieg, M.D., Ph.D., and Antonio Bernardo, M.D. For more information, email skullbasecourses@med.cornell.edu.

In addition to these annual CME courses, the Weill Cornell Brain and Spine Center offers a variety of one-time courses and other non-CME events.
