The annual meeting of the Neurosurgical Society of the Virginias takes place at one of the premiere resorts of Virginia or West Virginia each January. Any healthcare professional with an interest in the care of neurosurgical patients is welcome to attend and participate in the meeting. The meeting typically includes a welcome reception followed by two days of category I CME scientific presentations. One day is dedicated to clinical and scientific research performed by the neurosurgeons in training at one of the area residency programs whereas the second day is dedicated to presentations by the area private practice and academic neurosurgeons or other healthcare professionals and experts. An honored guest, which is typically a neurosurgeon or health care leader with a national or international reputation, is invited and provides two additional presentations on their area of expertise. All members of the Society are encouraged to attend the business meeting which occurs separate from the scientific sessions and helps to set the agenda and goals for the Society moving forward.
The Society invites students and residents in neurosurgery at the regional academic centers to present original research at the annual meeting. Click above to see the resident winners of the best basic science and clinical science presentations at each of the previous annual meetings.
