In 2022, the ISPN Education Committee launched a the first webinar series in collaboration with the World Federation of Neurological Societies (WFNS), the WFNS Education and Training Committee, the World Congress of Neurosurgery for Medical Students and Medical Residents (WCNMSMR) & the Pediatric Neurosurgery Committee of the WFNS.

This webinar series is focused towards young doctors (medical students, residents and trainees), and provides the essentials for those with an interest in pediatric neurosurgery. We are now running the 2nd series of this succesful series!

In addition, ISPN also recognized the need for training for nurses and we have now started to organize online Education Courses for Nurses as well.
