As the only neurosurgery training program within the Department of Defense, the National Capital Consortium has a mission to “Train the Military Neurosurgeon.” A large part of this mission is to have a thorough understanding of the literature that is specific to what makes military neurosurgery unique. This reading list represents a literature search designed to bring together these articles in one location for easy access. By understanding the lessons learned from previous conflicts, we can better internalize and apply these lessons to future conflicts when and where they arise.
--CDR Chris J Neal, MC USN, Neurosurgery Program Director NCC
