Dr. Paul McCormick from the Spine Center was invited to Riyadh recently to serve as a consultant and guest examiner for the Saudi Arabian Board of Neurosurgery’s oral examination certification.

Neurosurgical training in Saudi Arabia has, over the last few decades, become increasingly recognized around the world for their high standards. The six year neurosurgical program is run using a combination of North American and European training guidelines and culminates in a rigorous examination to achieve Board Certification.

“It’s remarkable to see how far the Saudi Arabian Board of Neurological Surgery has advanced in defining the standards of training, practice, and certification in neurological surgery,” says Dr. McCormick. “The Saudi Arabian Board Certification process is rigorous, thorough, and fair and in many ways resembles the well established American Board of Neurological Surgery Board Certification process.”
