Neurosurgical practice in Saudi Arabia is undeniably improving and continuously advancing over the past years. We therefore aim to use this meeting to present the true picture of a well-developed neurosurgery in the Kingdom.
One of the committed advocacies of every neurosurgeon is to advance developments in neurosurgical management through scientific research. In this meeting, we are encouraging young neurosurgeons and trainees to be involve in scientific research. Opening new horizons for neuroscience research through initiative and collaboration is one of the many goals of this meeting. Experts and well known neuroscience researchers are gracing this event to share and teach through their experiences.
Over the last few years, several scientific collaborations has been officially ratified in order to enhance research, training and education between University of Dammam and other international institutes and societies like Walter E.
