About us

Who we are?

The Swiss Young Neurosurgeons Society (SYNS) is an association dedicated to the continuous improvement of the neurosurgical training program for residents and young fellows in Switzerland. 


It was founded in 2005 by a handful of young residents with the aim of providing neurosurgical residents with custom-tailored educational courses by bringing together bright minds to give basic, focused talks and curate essential hands-on courses. Our aim is to foster learning and inspiration in the field of neurosurgery and provoke conversations that matter. As of 2011 SYNS carries the status of a registered society by Swiss law. 


We hope you as an aspiring neurosurgeon, member or supporter will find our homepage informative.
