(SOURCE) “NEUROSURGIC was launched in 2008 by two Swedish neurosurgeons, Dr. Steen Fridriksson and Dr. Thomas Skoglund. The main concept of the project is to promote networking between neurosurgeons and others with an interest in neurosurgery, to help members stay updated on various neurosurgical issues, and to provide a spectrum of useful resources for the busy neurosurgical clinician as well as the neurosurgical trainee.”
This website is a perfect example of using the internet to collaborate, and leverage it as a tool of education and communication. And they have been doing it for years, before blogging and networking were well-established. Thank you Steen and Thomas!
This blog is dedicated to “NeuroMind”, an Neurosurgical App, that is a must application for those who want help in the field of Neurosurgery,, or, as they say in medicine, the “application of choice” for Neurosurgeons, done by Pieter Kubben MD.
To learn more about Pieter, see this INTERVIEW with www.imedicalapps.com
Dr. Kubben is a senior Neurosurgical Resident in the Netherlands, and a frequent speaker for Medical Infomatics, as well as the author of the most popular app in Neurosurgery.
