Spine Surgery Lectures

We have 180 Spine Surgery Lectures available to purchase individually from our Spine Surgery Education Programme Diploma. The Spine Surgery Education Programme is endorsed by the European Spine Journal and all our spine surgery lectures are CME Accredited by the EACCME. Each lecture contains:

  • The Spine Surgery Lecture Presentation narrated by the Lecturer, one of our 140 world-class spine expert faculty.
  • Pre- and Post- Learning Assessments. Check your knowledge before the Lecture with the Pre-Learning Quiz, and confirm your improvement after with the Lecture Assessment. Both are in online Multiple-Choice Question format, with instant results.
  • Hours of extra material as downloadable journal articles, book chapters and videos – the evidence base – are presented in context within the Lecture and are instantly available.
  • Up to 3 CME Credits, awarded to you on passing the Lecture Assessment.

Please Note: Purchases of Spine Surgery Lectures include view and download access to the compulsory reference material. Full view and download access to all reference material (compulsory and recommended) is available in our Specialist Certificates, Modules and Diploma in Spine Surgery.
