The ISPN Education Committee has established the ISPN Clash of the Titans webinar series to provide education in the field of pediatric neurosurgery in a time where no physical courses can be held.

Webinars will be scheduled on the first and third Friday of the month. Each webinar will cover a controversial topic with two titans in pediatric neurosurgery facing each other, one for and one against.
