Abstract:

This paper provides a detailed report of Global Neurosurgery 2019: A Practical Symposium held January 18-19, 2019, at Weill Cornell Medical College, New York, New York, USA. The meeting convened an international faculty and audience, leaders in the world of global neurosurgery (GNS), and junior faculty and residents beginning their contribution to the field. Remote access for the symposium was provided to include faculty practicing in developing countries. The goal of the symposium was to present the state of the union of GNS initiatives worldwide, to use this forum as a means to centralize resources and converge parallel efforts, and to identify the largest areas of need and successful means of advancing training and care in these areas. The meeting also served as a conduit for the presentation of funding and training opportunities for junior faculty and trainees looking for avenues to gain support and mentorship in pursuing academic and clinical endeavors globally.
