Abstract

ALL NEUROSURGEONS RECOGNIZE the worldwide importance of top-level neurosurgical technology, education and treatment. Many, however, may be unaware of the formation of a charitable educational foundation, the Foundation for International Education in Neurological Surgery, to promote these ideologies and concepts. It was founded more than 25 years ago through the auspices of the Congress of Neurological Surgeons, supported by all of the national American neurosurgical societies. This article provides the background data of the formation of the Foundation for International Education in Neurological Surgery and will serve as a reminder to all neurosurgeons of the organization's existence and its continued global influence on neurosurgery.
