The UMMC Department of Neurosurgery, in collaboration with the UMMC Interdisciplinary Brain and Spine Tumor Program, is hosting virtual University Neuro-Oncology Seminars (UNOS) on the first Friday of every month. Each webinar will cover current, state-of-the-art guidelines on a wide range of neuro-oncology topics.
Each UNOS session is one hour long and offers one hour of CE credit. There is no fee for participants, but pre-registration is required.
Our main objectives are to foster collaboration between healthcare providers across Mississippi and to help develop standardized care for all brain tumor patients.
A Zoom link will be shared with registered participants.
