Speakers Bureau

The University of Pittsburgh Department of Neurological Surgery offers a speakers bureau service available for organizations interested in keeping abreast with the latest advances and techniques in the field of neurological surgery. This service is promoted through the University of Pittsburgh’s Center for Continuing Education and UPMC’s Office of Physician Relations.

The ultimate goal of the speakers bureau is to enhance education of current management of neurosurgical disorders at area hospitals and to help area physicians—and the community in general—become more aware of the services and advanced care available at the University of Pittsburgh Department of Neurological Surgery. 

Our physicians and researchers are world-renowned for their work in their field, with many pioneering unique and innovative approaches, treatments and studies. Their work has been widely published in many medical and technical journals and has been reported in numerous mainstream national media. The preeminence of their work has led many of our faculty to lecture around the world.
