Kranzler Chicago Review Course in Neurosurgery 2022

Chicago, IL US
January 22, 2022 to January 28, 2022
The Chicago Review Course in Neurosurgery has been recognized as the most thorough review of neurosurgery to residents and practicing physicians for more than forty years. Founded in 1973 as the Cook County Graduate Medical Education Neurosurgery Review Course, this course was launched in an effort to provide a comprehensive and intensive review for residents preparing for their written boards, newly-established neurosurgeons preparing for their oral boards, and practicing neurosurgeons who want to ensure their diagnostic and surgical skills are current. The course memorializes Dr. Leonard Kranzler's commitment to directing the course, and is hosted by Dr. Martin D. Herman and the University of Chicago. The week-long course has been updated to include quiz questions to participants and a rigorous lecture schedule offering neuroradiology, neurology, neuro-ophthalmology, neuro-oncology, pediatric neurosurgery, vascular neurosurgery, and functional and spine neurosurgery.
