Latin-American course in Pediatric Neurosurgery

The aim of this course is to promote the development of pediatric neurosurgery through the education and training of residents and practicing neurosurgeons.
The enduring success of the European Course in Pediatric Neurosurgery, established 32 years
ago by Maurice Choux, Concezio Di Rocco, and Karl Hovind, who organized it for the first time in
Marseille, France in 1986, has motivated the propagation of similar courses in the Americas and Asia- Pacific regions.
This project was strongly encouraged and endorsed by the World Federation of Neurological Surgeons (WFNS), International Pediatric Neurosurgery Society (ISPN), Chapter of Pediatric Neurosurgery from Latin American Society (FLANC) European Society for Pediatric Neurosurgery (ESPN), and the local pediatric institutions and leaders.
Designed to cover the major fields in pediatric neurosur- gery, the scientific program is divided into annual courses over a 3-year cycle, with each annual course based on a 4-day program divided in morning sessions comprising lectures and case discussions, as well as afternoon sessions with lectures, videos, “hands-on”, and “solve a case” sessions.
During the course, a transfer of expertise between teachers, regarded as leading experts in their scientific field, and trainees is actively promoted and encouraged. The atmosphere of this course is informal and the number of trainees is thus limited in order to further promote open discussions and the development of collegiality relationships.
An official certificate of completion is awarded to those who attend the full cycle of courses.
The Latin-American course is held in March/April, the European in May/June, and the Asian-Pacific in October/November.
