Each year, UTHealth Neurosciences hosts a variety of events for medical professionals, past patients and others interested in learning more about neurological health issues. These educational events bring together experts in the areas of neurosurgery, neurology, neuro-oncology, neuro-critical care, neurotrauma and nursing to present and discuss current topics in the field. From our annual Yatsu Day Symposium and Neuro ICU Symposium to our online webinars, UTHealth Medical School partners are helping educate patients and medical professionals, promoting continued innovation in neuroscience care.
Eighth Annual Neuro ICU Symposium
The Eighth Annual Neuro ICU Symposium will be hosted virtually this year on July 21-22nd. The two day course is designed to educate physicians, surgeons, nurses, and other healthcare professionals on how to optimally manage patients using a team approach and evidence-based medicine. This year’s emphasis will be on envisioning the future of Neuro ICU care, focusing on comprehensive patient care and optimizing critical care delivery.
Pediatric Neuroscience Symposium
The Pediatric Neuroscience Symposium is returning in September. This one day, holistic course will provide updates on a range of neurologic conditions in pediatric patients. The series of lectures will be led by several UTHealth Neuroscience pediatric physicians, including Dr. David Sandberg, Dr. Manish Shah, and Dr. Stephen Fletcher, among others. Check back soon for updates.
Houston Neuroendovascular Surgery Club
The Houston Neuroendovascular Surgery Club (HNESC) hosts multidisciplinary meetings jointly provided by UTHealth Neurosciences. The HNESC meetings gather local experts in Neuroendovascular Surgery, from various specialties including Neurosurgery, Neurology and Radiology, in an open forum for the presentation, discussion, and analysis of interesting neurovascular and interventional cases. HNESC meetings are case-driven. We expect to receive case submissions of which the most interesting will be selected for oral presentation.
