The EANS Young Neurosurgeons' Meeting was conceived as a bridge for those years in between the European Training Courses in Neurosurgery and consultancy. Strictly speaking 'young neurosurgeons' are defined as those in the 10 years after board certification.
It is an educational meeting with a strong faculty : participant ratio, which provides unique networking opportunities. The EANS believes that creating a community of young neurosurgeons, for young neurosurgeons, is of crucial importance – and not just to the wider neurosurgical community, but also to the future leadership of the EANS itself.
YN Meetings provide a unique chance to interact with the faculty as equals, to ask probing questions, and to participate in lively debate about neurosurgical controversies. They are also the ideal place to bring your own cases for second opinions, reviews, help, and honest discussion.
And of course the YN Meetings provide an ideal opportunity for EANS Training Course alumni to meet up once they have graduated from the Courses – both with their fellow trainees and many faculty they have got to know over their four years in the Training Courses.
Our Committee represents the interests of European trainees and newly board-certified neurosurgeons. We are committed to furthering the sense of community for Young Neurosurgeons, providing a platform for making new connections, finding mentors, and providing excellent educational material. Our current Chair is Nicolás Samprón (Spain).

EANS YN 2017
The 7th Annual EANS Young Neurosurgeons' Meeting took place in Amsterdam, The Netherlands from 6 – 8 April 2017.
The topic of the Meeting was Pathologies of the Spine, and we had the pleasure of welcoming faculty and participants from all over the world, and enjoyed a high-quality scientific programme.
The Meeting was immediately preceded by the EANS Research Course, which gave attendees the opportunity to attend both easily – we will be repeating this for the next Meeting
We're looking forward to the 2018 Meeting in Oxford – to be held in cooperation with the WFNS Young Neurosurgeons Forum.
