CME Conferences

The Departments of Neurology and Neurosurgery host the following CME conferences:

Advances in Neurology and Neurosurgery 2014
Santa Barbara

Saturday, November 22, 2014
Four Seasons The Biltmore Santa Barbara, 1260 Channel Drive, Santa Barbara, California

The clinical neurosciences are undergoing rapid changes in the diagnosis and treatment of neurological disorders, particularly those concerning surgical treatment options.  At the conclusion of this course, neurologists, internists, family practitioners, neurosurgeons, endocrinologists, oncologists and allied healthcare professionals will have an increased awareness of both established and emerging treatment options for brain and pituitary tumors, movement disorders such as Parkinson’s disease,  and endovascular and stroke management.  The program will present the treatment options in an interdisciplinary fashion using plenary lectures and case presentations. This symposium will offer participants an opportunity to engage in interactive discussions with renowned faculty who are involved with initiating these neurological advances.


7th Annual Symposium on Neurovascular Disease

Saturday, January 24, 2015
Casa Del Mar Hotel, 1910 Ocean Way, Santa Monica, California

Neurovascular disease is the number one cause of permanent adult disability in the United States. Exciting new treatments have shown promise, not only in preventing subsequent strokes, but reversing the effects of acute stroke. The evaluation and management of acute stroke, transient ischemic attack (TIAs), and cerebral aneurysms are in rapid evolution. Likewise, the Joint Commission designation of Comprehensive Stroke Centers may impact how healthcare is delivered to these patients. It is vital that neurologists, neurosurgeons, internists, family practitioners, and vascular surgeons, as well as allied healthcare professionals stay updated on these developing options and health care systems to provide the best care for their patients.  This conference will provide participants with updated information on acute stroke treatments, explore stroke risk factors in women, and present the latest advances in neurovascular surgery technologies. Designed to encourage participation and discussion, this one-day conference provides an interdisciplinary approach using didactic lectures, case presentations, and audience polling and participation to present new neurovascular data and discuss challenging clinical cases. Renowned regional and national faculty will present and discuss both traditional and cutting edge treatments and management strategies.
