Previous Courses

The first Scandinavian course in Neurosurgery was held at Beitostølen in 1997. By combining the best neurosurgical lectureres of Scandinavia with the possibility to discuss differences in patient management between the departments the course was an instant success. The course maintains a reputation for fostering a friendly atmosphere encouraging optimal learning and high-quality discussions between residents and lecturers.

The course was established by professor Iver Langmoen and was later chaired by professor Eirik Helseth (2006-2008) and Jon Ramm-Pettersen (2008-2016).  

The Annual Scandinavian Course in Neurosurgery runs over a four-year cycle covering all aspects of neurosurgery. The course is usually held during week 12.
