The Third WFNS Foundation Rabat Live Surgery Seminar for Young African Neurosurgeons

The Third WFNS Foundation Rabat Live Surgery Seminar for Young African Neurosurgeons

23 – 25 March 2018

The World Federation of Neurosurgical Societies Foundation promotes the worldwide development of Neurosurgery, mainly concerning basic neurosurgical issues and focusing on developing countries.
Millions of people suffer brain and spine related injuries, tumors, and infections worldwide. In developing countries people frequently die or are left with permanent disabilities due to the lack of neurosurgical access. To help meet the world’s neurosurgical needs, the WFNS Foundation was created in 2000 in Geneva, inspired by Professor Madjid Samii and Professor Gerardo Martín Rodríguez, both current WFNS Honorary Presidents, as a branch of the Federation, with its own authorities and Executive & Advisory Board.
The WFNS Foundation does not participate in WFNS or Regional Federations political activities. However, it has active participation in all projects or programs meant to reduce inequality in worldwide neurosurgical management, with equity as the essence of our mission.
The WFNS Foundation is dedicated to:
Training and supporting the post-graduate education of young neurosurgeons in developing countries – we offer an international network of Training Centers.
Providing travel scholarships to young neurosurgeons to attend educational courses and fellowships.
Providing high-quality, low-cost instrument sets and equipment to neurosurgeons in developing countries.
Companies in the industry such as Aesculap, Carl Zeiss, Karl Storz have contributed to this purpose.

3DN NED Foundation Neuroanatomy Training

Estimados compañeros,

Es un placer dar a conocer el proyecto de educación en Neurocirugia y Neuroanatomia que la Fundación NED, en colaboración con 3DNeuroanatomy va a llevar a cabo en el Instituto NED-MNAZI MMOJA en Zanzibar, Tanzania, a partir del próximo mes de Mayo. Recientemente el Instituto ha sido acreditado como Centro de Formación de Neurocirujanos referente en el Este de África for el Colegio de Cirujanos de África del Este, Sur y Central (COSECSA).

Este proyecto educativo está enfocado a jóvenes neurocirujanos y residentes, con el objetivo de acercarles los conceptos neuroanatómicos, así como los abordajes quirúrgicos más comunes en formato estereoscopico.

Con el objetivo de cubrir la mayor parte de la patología neuroquirurgica, se ha dividido en seis cursos que cerraran el ciclo en tres años con dos cursos anuales.

Este año 2018 se cubrirán los capítulos de abordajes básicos y anatomía cerebral, y abordajes en neuroendoscopia.

Para más información, podéis contactar con Esperanza Beleguer (administration@nedfundacion.org) o Andreas Leidinger (Andreas_Leidinger@hotmail.com).

Deseando que esta información sea de vuestro interés, recibid un cordial saludo.

Equipo Fundación NED y 3DN.
