Professor Devkota started postgraduate neurosurgical (MCh) training as a constituent programme of Kathmandu University. He also collaborated with the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Pakistan. The fifteen neurosurgeons who have been trained by us are all working across Nepal.

The day starts with a multi-disciplinary morning meeting. All newly admitted and critical cases are discussed and the management plan is refined. This meeting also provides the opportunity to plan the surgical approaches for difficult operative cases.

Seminars by consultants, residents and medical officers are regularly hosted, accredited by the Nepal Medical Council with Continued Professional Development (CPD) points.

Close group morbidity and mortality discussion helps to further refine our services. Monthly clinico-radiologico-pathology meets, journal club presentations from in-house multidisciplinary experts, keeps the team abreast with recent advances in medical literature.

Academic rigour is also secured through regular visits of eminent neuroscientists from all over the world.

A skills laboratory with an operating microscope for cadaveric neurosurgical dissection and brain-cutting enhances the residents’ technical capabilities.

What makes UDM-NINAS a true hub for neurological and allied sciences are the bilateral observerships or fellowships created across renowned institutions. Our doctors visit prominent neurological centers in the UK and USA, and doctors and neurosurgical trainees from abroad regularly visit us. Residents from various medical colleges under the Kathmandu University and BP Koirala Institute of Health Sciences collaborate with us for neuro-anaesthesiology, neuro-radiology, neurology and neurosurgery rotations at our centre.

Till date, 77 research papers have been published from our institute in various PUBMED indexed international and national journals. There have been presentations made in several international (AANS, SBNS, WFNS) and national forums.

The Institute has successfully participated in many multicentre international research trials (CRASH-3, INVICTUS, ENRIH-AF) and is expecting more in the days to come.

The above activities highlight the emphasis the institute has always given on the Academic fronts which is imperative of a flag-bearer, tertiary level, national neurological and allied setup.
