Teachenor-Williamson Society Symposium

NS residents with 2019 Teachenor-Williamson keynote Nanda

The 2019 Teachenor-Williamson Society Symposium keynote speaker Anil Nanda, M.D., MPH, (sixth from left), professor and chair of neurosurgery at Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School and senior vice president for neurosurgical services at RWJ Barnabas Health, with KU Department of Neurosurgery residents and chair, Paul J. Camarata, M.D. (first from right).  

To further recognize the legacy of scholarly comradery of Frank Randall Teachenor, M.D., and William P. Williamson, M.D., two pioneers of neurosurgery at KU Medical Center, the Teachenor-Williamson Society Symposiums recapture the spirit of the Frank R. Teachenor Lectures hosted by the department between 1958 and 1969.

Debuting in 2012, the Teachenor-Williamson Symposiums bring together the program's faculty, residents and alumni; local and visiting neurosurgeons; and distinguished guests interested in the clinical neurosciences. The event features an evening dinner and keynote speaker followed by a half-day slate of educational talks.
