Dear colleagues,

the WFNS Pediatric Committee is pleased to propose a new webinar series titled “Basic Principles of Pediatric Neurosurgery: How I do it”

What is the scope?

The scope of this webinar is to build interaction with general neurosurgeons dealing with children in countries and regions where access to sub specialty pediatric neurosurgery care is limited or absent.

How does it work?

You may ask for a webinar on a specific topic. The WFNS Pediatric committee will organize a webinar with an ad hoc faculty.
