New Year, New You? Unproductive Christmas? Why not kick off your New Year resolutions by finding out more about a career in neurosurgery!

Neurosurgeons have the privilege of working in one of the most anatomically beautiful spaces, where the stakes are high.
In collaboration with the neurosurgical trainees and consultants at Southampton General Hospital, we bring you Southampton’s first Undergraduate Neurosurgical Symposium.

This is an exciting opportunity for around 30 students to explore a career not featured in the BM4/5/6 courses, network with trainees and leaders in their field, and partake in stimulating small group workshops and teaching. All for only half a Saturday. What’s not to love… This year we have a burr-hole drilling workshop for those technical ones amongst you.
We have 3 fantastic speakers confirmed, who will share their years of experience and outline what it takes to succeed in such a demanding, but rewarding, speciality.

Mr Ryan Waters – Consultant in Paediatric Neurosurgery and Neurotrauma.
Mr Aminul Ahmed – Academic Neurosurgical Fellow – MB PhD graduate and interests in stem cells for TBI.
Mr Sam Hall – Neurosurgical Trainee – Southampton alumini and founder of NUNC.

The day will round-off with an invaluable opportunity to network with trainees and neurosurgeons.
Watch this space for itinerary updates and information about ticket releases. This is an event not to be missed by anyone with an interest in neurosurgery, neurology or neuroscience.’
