2021 The 3rd Canadian Neuroradiology Course – Part 1

& Dan Andreae Lectureship

Pediatric – Tumors – Neurodegenerative & Adult Metabolic Diseases

November 13-15, 2020 

Virtual Conference 

Welcome Address

The only constant in life is change and there has been quite a bit over the past couple of months. As one of the consequences of the current Pandemic, the Organizing Committee has decided to move to a virtual CNRC for 2020, a decision that was not made lightly.

Participants of previous years’ courses praised the collegiality, the opportunity to meet other fellows from all over the country, to network and meet faculty from across Canada. Likewise, the faculty enjoyed the social component of the meeting, getting to know fellows and each other is in a country as big as Canada not always easily achievable.

This social component is in times of physical distancing not possible or associated with risks that currently very few want to take, as these are risks that go beyond oneself and affect families, colleagues and staff at hospitals all over Canada.

However, cancelling this course did not appeal to us as an option as this would not allow that each “generation” of fellows/subspecialty residents gets exposed to the full curriculum.

We have therefore decided to do a full virtual meeting – and in the spirit of this being a non-for-profit course we will offer this course completely free of charge to anyone who wants to join in through Zoom.

We have excellent lecturers from all over Canada, a schedule of topics in Neuropediatrics and Neurooncology that have proven the test of time from our previous iteration of the course and as Prof. Andrea Rossi from Genoa as our Keynote Andreae Lecturer 2020. We will try to be as interactive as possible, add quiz sessions and allow you to use the Chat function to ask questions during the lectures.

We hope that you embrace change and join us virtually for the 2020 edition of the CNRC.

This program was developed following a review of objective data including practice data, literature surveys/reviews, consultation with experts in the field, and the experience and needs perceived by members of the planning committee. As well, subjective data from the previous year’s evaluations was reviewed in detail to create a focus for this year’s program.
