The CNS offers its members a number of interactive and informative activities to stay in the loop with all things CNS and neurosurgery.
CNS Journal Club Podcasts
The journal club format has long been used by residents and trainees to stay abreast of developments in the field. In 2017, the CNS updated this format using the medium of the podcast. The CNS Journal Club Podcast series bring lively discussions with the authors of critical new reading from Neurosurgery to listeners throughout the world.
Recent journal club podcasts include award-winning papers discussed by the lead author, with questions and critiques from invited surgeons and residents. Seven podcasts are currently available, with a new one coming each month. All podcasts are available on iTunes and Soundcloud.
Case of the Month
Case of the Month (COTM) remains one of the CNS's most popular online education tools, providing surgeons with the opportunity to review the management and treatment of neurosurgical cases, answer questions, and review relevant journal articles. Monthly cases may be viewed at cns.org/education/case-of-the-month.
Neurosurgery Watch gives neurosurgeons an easy way to stay up-to-date with current literature. Key results of significant, clinical practice-changing papers from over 50 journals are summarized monthly by an expert panel. Summaries can be found at cns.org/publications/neurosurgery-watch.
