Yesterday, the second day of the RAMS International Summer School Neurosurgery 2017 was of an extensive variety! Almost forty students took part in the lecture series that started with two lectures from professor Aronica, a neuropathologist from the Amsterdam Medical Centre. With neurodevelopmental disorders as her main area of interest, Aronica came to Nijmegen especially for this Summer School to teach about neuropathology and neuro-oncology associated with development of the central nervous system. After lunch, dr Boogaarts devoted his noon to giving a comprehensive lecture about vascular neurosurgery in all its aspects. The exciting and quickly evolving field was presented by the support of some fascinating clinical cases. Dr Delye enthused students with an overview of his specialty: craniosynostosis surgery, in which he also addressed many future perspectives in the field. The day was closed off by a two-hour lecture about epilepsy surgery by Peter Gosselaar, a Utrecht-based neurosurgeon with epilepsy amongst his areas of interest. He is one of the three neurosurgeons that work in the Utrecht Epilepsy Centre, where the majority of epilepsy surgery takes place. The lecture’s support of many clinical problems, future challenges and captivating cases lead to many questions and interesting discussions amongst the students! In addition, all students started working in groups on their review for Friday. All in all, the enthusiasm students show is phenomenal!
