Fourth Year of Course for Young Neurosurgeons EANS Cranial Step I Hands-On at FM MU
Participants gain practical experience with basic neurosurgical anatomy, surgical planning, manipulation with basic neurosurgical equipment and basic neurosurgical cranial approaches.
The European Association of Neurosurgical Societies (EANS) organises a course for young neurosurgeons at the Department of Anatomy FM MU, so that they could gain practical experience in basic surgical approaches and clinical anatomy. The fourth year of the course took place from 23rd to 26th November.
The course took place under the leadership of Professor Martin Smrčka, Head of the Department of Neurosurgery of UHB and FM MU, and professor Torsten Meling, president of EANS. The course was attended by 20 neurosurgeons from many European countries such as Portugal, Poland, Lithuania, Estonia or Germany. The participants of the course were able to broaden their knowledge of clinical anatomy. They had the opportunity to improve their surgical planning, manipulation with neurosurgical equipment, and basic neurosurgical approaches to the cranial fossae.

First students to experience team-based learning as an alternative to frontal teaching
Team-based learning (TBL), translated as team-based learning, is a collaborative learning method defined as "active learning in small groups through opportunities to apply contextual knowledge in a sequence of activities involving individual and team work and through immediate feedback". In the world, it has been in use since the 1970s, but in the Czech Republic it is still rather an exception. At the Faculty of Medicine of Masaryk University, students could experience it in the recent past through special lectures organised in the premises of SIMU, but since the new academic year, the Theoretical Foundations of Clinical Medicine II seminar for fourth-year students of general medicine is based on the TBL concept. Dr. Tamara Skříšovská, who plays the role of a content expert or clinical expert in the lessons, and Martina Bruzlová, a master's student, as a facilitator, will explain its innovative character. Such staffing is one of the aspects that characterise TBL seminars.
