Concerning the neurosurgical part, multiple choice exam will count for 40 points, participation to UCL seminars in neurosurgery and collaboration to a scientific paper 10 points (one point by seminar and five points maximum for a paper). A general interview with discussion of two clinical cases counts for 20 points and will be carried out before the teaching commission in neurosurgery

Possible courses
