"CNS is an amazing platform to learn and share ideas with colleagues and mentors. I believe CNS provides life-long learning and an opportunity to socialize with peers." – Mayur Sharma
"As a clinical neuropathologist, the CNS community is a critical professional organization for me since without neurosurgeons and the neurosurgery community, there is no chance for neuropathologists to help patients and be forever limited to the study of the dead. In my career of more than 30 years, I have worked closer to my neurosurgery and neuro-oncology colleagues than other pathologists or physicians. CNS is a stellar professional organization that provides a home not only for neurosurgeons, but also all those who work closely with neurosurgeons.
My other role as an academic educator truly needs the presence of organizations like CNS. Only through these organizations, I can participate in multidisciplinary, interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary work that transcends simple pathology and becomes an effective teaching activity to improve trainee competences and improve patient care. As the molecular and genomic advances change our practice and understanding, I find CNS a perfect venue to convey these advances to neurosurgery trainees in collaboration with my neurosurgical colleagues.
I can certainly go on more about the value of CNS community, but suffice it to say that I will consider this organization a home during my entire career." – Tarik Tihan
"The CNS represents the best, brightest, and leading voices in Neurosurgery from all over the world. I look to the CNS for cutting edge education as we as neurosurgeons aim to move our field forward to improve the care of our patients. As a community, the CNS provides the education, resources, support, and opportunities for every neurosurgeon.
Neurosurgery has a bright future—it is through education, mentorship, and team-based care that we will advance neurosurgical care, develop new procedures and therapies, and improve healthcare delivery and access for our patients. Neurosurgery is at the cutting edge of science and medicine; combined with technology and research, it is very likely that neurosurgical innovation and research will lead to new therapies and cures never before thought achievable—all in our lifetime." – Brian V. Nahed
"The CNS represents the future of neurosurgery. With a focus on education, innovation, and leadership, the CNS is creating the transformational clinicians and leaders of today and the future in our field." – Nader Pouratian
"Despite significant challenges from the COVID-19 pandemic, neurosurgeons have rapidly come together and changed practice patterns to continue to deliver excellent care to all patients. Through efforts led by CNS leadership, neurosurgical education has also pivoted into virtual learning, so that future generations of neurosurgeons receive necessary instruction. These adaptations inspire hope for a bright neurosurgery future." – Robert G. Whitmore
