    Teaching Rounds and Conferences

    There is a wealth of clinical conferences at Barrow, including multidisciplinary clinical rounds, basic science rounds, and teaching rounds.

    For residents, the most important of these opportunities are the teaching rounds held by Dr. Robert Spetzler, Dr. Peter Nakaji, and Dr. Nicholas Theodore. Commonly referred to as film rounds, this teaching conference represents the ultimate commitment to resident education and have been the way Barrow neurosurgery residents have finished their day for more than 20 years.  Film rounds consist of inquisitive discussion combined with film review.  Questions of diagnosis, anatomy, treatment options, and outcomes are posed to residents, similar to how the ABNS oral boards are performed.

    In addition to film rounds, the department’s regularly scheduled conferences include:

    • tumor board
    • endovascular and stroke
    • morbidity and mortality
    • neuroendocrine
    • journal club
    • board review
    • epilepsy
    • neuropathology brain cutting
    • clinical and neuroscience grand rounds
