A virtual workspace for Chairs and Residency Directors of ACGME accredited neurosurgery programs to exchange information on best practices during the COVID-19 Pandemic. The idea is to support effective communication that is increasingly difficult in this time of great challenge, and without the stress on email inboxes that chain messages create. Please note that this workspace is not intended for COVID-related operational or clinical issues which should and must come through authorized channels at your individual institution, and reflect local conditions as well as state and institutional guidelines.
SNS hosted a webinar titled Tipping the Three Legged Stool: Post-COVID Impact on Neurosurgical Departments. A summary of this webinar is above.
The SNS hosted a Virtual Round-table Discussion for Program Directors and Program Administrators on August 25th regarding Virtual Interviews. The goal was to provide an open guided discussion to share ideas and best practices for the upcoming residency application cycle.
