The Munich Brain Course in 2019 will take place on March 15th and 16th. As in the last years, the content will be provided in a concentrated form on two days. The German part (Intensivkurs Neuroanatomie) and the English part (Munich Brain Course) will run in parallel. As in the past, not all neuroanatomical topics can be displayed in one course, so each year has its own focus.

CME points: 18 points (expected)
Number of participants: 45 English speaking participants (the dissections take place in groups of 5 participants with one tutor)
Course fee: 595 Euro (including VAT)
