The WFNS Young Neurosurgeons Forum (YNF) is a WFNS committee that is an advocate and conduit for developing the knowledge, surgical skills, research capability, and career opportunities for young neurosurgeons worldwide in order to align with the WFNS mission of benefiting patients and improving neurosurgical care.
Several new members joined the committee after the Istanbul meeting, covering all WFNS geographical regions.
In the past 12 months, the WFNS YNF has achieved a number of milestones:
The support provided by the WFNS leadership, particularly Dr Franco Servadei and Dr David Adelson, has been very important.
Finally, the WFNS YNF has initiated a survey of young neurosurgeons (i.e. those in training or within 10 years after the end of residency). This online survey aims to document, for the first time, not only the demographics and needs of young neurosurgeons worldwide but also their views on improving neurosurgical care for all those who need it.

The survey should take no more than 10 minutes to complete, and we would be grateful if you could forward it to as many of your young neurosurgical colleagues as possible.
