MD Anderson Skull Base Course
The MD Anderson Skull Base Course highlights multidisciplinary surgical approaches in skull base surgery. As part of the Skull Base Tumor Program and in partnership with the Head and Neck Surgery department, Neurosurgery organizes this course regularly. It includes lectures and hands-on time in the lab.
In November 2023, Neurosurgery welcomed two distinguished guests to the MD Anderson Skull Base Course: Marc Rosen, M.D. and James J. Evans, M.D. of Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia.
At the Neurosurgery departments Grand Rounds, Evans delivered the Annual Lectureship in Skull Base Surgery. His presentation was entitled "Reconstruction Techniques in Endonasal Surgery."
Rosen delivered remarks at the Head and Neck Surgery department Grand Rounds. His presentation was entitled "Extended Endoscopic Cranial Base Surgery: The Jefferson Perspective."
The course was attended by MD Anderson faculty, staff and our neurosurgical oncology fellows and residents. We thank the speakers for joining us and helping to train the next generation of neurosurgeons!
