    About The Event



    Join us for the CNS Skull Base Fellows Course, August 27–28, 2020 at Case Western Reserve University/University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center in Cleveland, Ohio.

    Specifically designed for skull base fellows or early-career neurosurgeons with an interest in skull base surgery, this two-day intensive course offers:

    • A combination of lectures, case-based discussions, and hands-on cadaver dissections covering the basic surgical approaches and anatomy required of every skull base neurosurgeon
    • Experienced faculty, including leading neurosurgeons and ENT surgeons
    • Demonstrations of posterolateral transtemporal surgical approaches, as well as endoscopic endonasal anatomy and surgical options 

    In designing this year’s course, we have taken specific COVID-related precautions, including ensuring social distancing during lectures, and providing masks and personal protective equipment for the laboratory sessions. We will continue to monitor and assess guidelines as they relate to this course.
