Report of the fifth edition of the NSSI teaching program held on 29th & 30th June, 2013 at SMS Medical College,Jaipur.

The fifth edition of the NSSI teaching program was a resounding success. With numerous case presentations and lectures on topics covering functional neurosurgery and neurophysiological tests by competent authorities on the subject, this program was an endeavour to cover the most important parts of the curriculum in neurosurgery which the students find difficult and bewildering.

The program started on 29th June, with case presentations on cervico-dorsal space occupying lesion, intracranial space occupying lesion and sellar-suprasellar mass in the morning session presided over by Dr Dinesh Khandelwal, AP, Department of Neurology, SMS Medical College. This was followed by lectures and presentations on functional neurosurgery by Dr Aditya Gupta, alumnus AIIMS, New Delhi, now working at Medanta Medicity, Gurgaon, who is one of the leading practioners of the stream in our country. He has been exposed to the best faculties in the world during his training and in his simple and highly effective teaching session, he was able to impart not just the knowledge but also a sense of curiosity and a hunger for further learning in the field.
Part one of the presentation on the first day included Evolution of functional neurosurgery in the world and in our country and its modern perspectives and role of functional neurosurgery in movement disorders.

The second day started with demonstration and lecture on Neurophysiological tests including NCV, EMG and EEG by Dr Dinesh Khandelwal. This was followed by case presentations by participating students from outside Jaipur including G B Pant, New Delhi and DNB students. The case presentation was presided over by Professor and Head Neurosurgery, Dr R S Mittal sir who guided the students in his erudite manner about the fine nuances of the cases. He discussed in detail about the symptomatology and guided as a mentor through the long and short cases, with questions, concepts and clarifications on important aspects of history, clinical examination, radiology and management of the cases. This session was clearly the high point of the program and was very well received by the participating students. The cases included intracranial space occupying lesion and AAD with Rheumatoid Arthritis. This was followed by the second part of the presentation on functional neurosurgery which included epilepsy surgery and stereotactic radio surgery.

The topics of the presentation were carefully chosen keeping in mind the need of the hour for the exam going students and it was highly appreciated by the participating students who were able to clear their doubts related to these topics and discuss in detail with the authorities on the subject. Clearly, this was a very successful program with very good participation from students from many parts of the country and they expressed keen interest in such programs in future as well.
