The Canadian Neurosurgery Rookie Camp was established nine years ago with the primary objective of supporting new surgical trainees with their transition into residency. Training programs across Canada recognize the steep learning curve faced during the first year and the positive impact that attending this focused surgical course can have on preparing residents for the next six years. Every two years, a different Canadian university is selected to host the Neurosurgery Rookie Camp.
This day-long event features a series of poster and oral presentations from our residents, graduate students, PhD candidates and postdoctoral fellows. We will also host a distinguished researcher who will present the keynote address. Attendees of the event are the Department’s faculty, including neurosurgeons, neurologists, affiliated radiologists, pathologists and imaging researchers.
What you need to know about stroke diagnosis, management and recovery focused in the office setting. The course will review what happens in acute stroke; how to manage stroke-related recovery issues, including spasticity and driving and how to assess and treat preventively after stroke. The course will be highly interactive and registrant driven with ample time for interaction and discussion.
