EANS Hands On

EANS Hands-On Course


Next Dates: 26th-30th June 2017, 8th-12th January 2018, 25th-29th June 2018

Location: Lyon, France



The EANS Hands-On course is aimed specifically at participants in the third year of the EANS Neurosurgical Training course cycle. Preference will be given to these applicants, but others are very welcome to apply for any places which remain available. The first course took place in June 2012 and it was very successful. Since then two courses per year have been organised, normally one in January and one in June.

The capacity of the course is 20 participants, which allows a ratio of two participants per cadaver. The programme comprises both cranial and spinal approaches and endoscopy techniques of neurosurgery.

There are approximately 10 faculty members, roughly half of whom are regular EANS faculty. The rest are expert local teachers, with considerable experience of teaching on similar cadaver courses.

We believe that Lyon is an excellent venue for our Hands-On course. The University Hospital has considerable experience and expertise in this field, and the city is easily accessible by both air and rail.
