Authors: Angelos Kolias, Faith Robertson, Kerry Vaughan, Amro Al-Habib, Ignatius Esene on behalf of the WFNS Young Neurosurgeons Committee
The Young Neurosurgeons Committee of the WFNS designed a global survey in 2018 with the aim of understanding the key needs of Young Neurosurgeons, their access to education and equipment, and the hurdles that they face in daily practice.
The findings of the survey, which attracted nearly 1000 responses, have now been published as two open access papers in World Neurosurgery.
The findings of these papers shaped the strategy of our committee from 2019-2021 and we are pleased to report that we are making good progress in all priority areas identified by the survey (training, research, mentorship, gender equity, work life balance etc.).
