Join here with Zoom on July 7th 8am EST for

Embo Club / Neurovascular Fellow Welcome Day


Basic and Advanced Neurovascular ANAtomy Zoom  — BANANAZ — is an online interactive meeting space for neurovascular education.  Anyone can join and learn.  The meetings are every Tuesday at 8 am — time is set to try to accommodate most habitable time zones on a spherical planet. 

There are two formats:

Virtual Embo Club is basically a meeting room for free format interactive presentations and discussions.  Anyone can present whatever they want — as long as its related to neurovascular.   Anyone can comment and discuss. Sessions will run every other week for ~2 hours.   Please email if you want to present and let us know your topic so we can prepare for discussion.  Presentations should be 10-15 minutes long, to allow for discussion, which is really what this is about.

Presentation and Cases is a semi-structured event, with a 25-30 minute lecture on a du jour anatomical topic, geared towards neurovascular trainees (residents, fellows), followed by 25-30 min of cases highlighting the lecture topic and discussion.  The primary purpose is to discuss practical neurovascular anatomy.  Majority of lectures will be given by core faculty, enhanced by guest appearances.   Topics are posted in the “Upcoming Events” section, and will loosely stick to a yearly July cycle.  If you have a case / illustration that fits the topic, you can email and show it during the meeting

Recordings of prior Presentation and Cases meetings can be found on
