Part of the Acta Neurochirurgica Supplements book series (NEUROCHIRURGICA, volume 69)


The subject of this presentation is not outside evaluation of the training process, which certainly is one possibility for improving the quality of training, even if perhaps expensive and bureaucratic. The subject rather is the normal, continuous, honest and internal audit of the education process, a more practical and effective method. Actually “education” is the word I would like to use for the training process of a neurosurgeon.
