At the tables around in the room, groups of participants, who for most didn’t know each other beforehand, are getting to work. They have very different levels of expertise, as Thomas commented to me afterwards, from the beginner resident to the fully accomplished consultant. If everyone has a chance to look into the microscope, not everyone is interested or able to engage in the same phases of the training. For the entry-level practitioners, practising a craniotomy or holding the suckling device to a human brain is already a challenging experience. For the more advanced, getting the chance to put into practice the lesson of the masters, while being supervised by a surgeon chief of Charité, is a rewarding thrill.

Samuel, a guest neurosurgeon from Italy to the department, marvels at the pedagogic initiative: it’s so important to practise on actual bodies, he says, and it will impact considerably the first interventions of the participants.
