The American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS) presents an unmatched educational opportunity for neurosurgeons at all levels. In Weekend Update: Neurosurgery, neurosurgeons test their knowledge of state-of-the-art clinical concepts covering the spectrum of practice. This fast-paced course curriculum offers participants tremendous value, providing a comprehensive review and 26 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ in just one weekend.
Whether attendees are reviewing concepts in neurological surgery that are not a frequent part of their current practice, updating their overall knowledge to the most current, evidence-based practices, or fulfilling the ABNS MOC Part II requirement for self-assessment, the AANS Weekend Update course offers useful takeaways by way of self-assessment and personalized study with more than 100 cases that run the gamut of neurosurgical topics.
The course is divided into two distinct aspects: an online portion you can review at your leisure consisting of 5.75 CME credits augmented by a live course that will reinforce concepts with associated cases and offers 20.25 CME credits. The online pre-course material provides an excellent opportunity to refresh your knowledge of various aspects of neurological surgery not present in your daily practice with the ability to do so at your own pace. The online portion is further enhanced by the live high-paced, focused, case-based interactive weekend session. The use of an interactive audience-response system (ARS) allows participants to submit their responses to clinical questions and view the most popular peer responses in real time. At the conclusion of the review, participants receive a personalized digital summary of responses to each clinical scenario. This valuable resource identifies areas of strength as well as areas that may require additional focus of study.
