We are delighted to invite you to the second edition of the Basic Brain course organized by the Besta NeuroSim center and the SWISS Foundation for Innovation and Training in Surgery (SFITS).
The basics of neurosurgery will be taught by combining face to face lectures with experiential learning. We prepared interactive training modules based on case-studies, demos, techniques presentations, group discussions, simulation exercises, haptic-feedback computerized neurosurgical operations, role-plays, debriefs and self-report evaluation.
During the theoretical courses basic surgical techniques will be taught. You will have the opportunity to exercise these techniques on simulators as well as on anatomical specimens. Your non-technical skills will improve as well, especially when performing the modules on ethics, communication, resilience, empathy, and stress management. These soft skills are crucial for all neurosurgeons.
At the end of the course, every candidate will receive a personal evaluation from the faculty members.
By the end of the program, participants will have a deep knowledge on:
The course is open for junior neurosurgeons (1st-3rd years of residency).
The course is done under the auspices of EANS, SYNS, Swiss Society of Neurosurgery and Società Italiana di Neurochirurgia (SINch).
In 2019, the Milano course has been granted 14 European CME credits (ECMEC®s) and 17 European CME credits (ECMEC®s) for the Geneva course by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME®).
