Langfitt Events and Meetings

Participating in various neurosurgical events is the most effective way for students to get involved in neurosurgery at Penn. Every Thursday (unless otherwise noted), there are a series of educational events sponsored by the department of neurosurgery. These events are organized into a series of 1-2 hour long talks and lectures in which featured faculty and outside speakers discuss important issues in neurosurgery. These lectures are open to medical students and are an invaluable resource to learn more about neurosurgery at Penn. The weekly schedule below lists events that are open to student attendance.

In addition to the weekly department sponsored events, there are also events sponsored specifically by the Langfitt society. These events are focused on developing student interest in neurosurgery, and usually occur on a monthly basis. All interested medical students are encouraged to attend these meetings, the agenda for which is set in advance by Langfitt's president. Upcoming meeting are listed below.
