NRCDP’s Retreat

The Retreat is the thought-provoking and informative cornerstone of the Neurosurgeon Research Career Development Program. It provides an opportunity for junior faculty to interact directly with the NRCDP national advisory committee members, senior neurosurgery faculty, and NIH/NINDS career development leaders in a small-group interactive format that allows for individual mentoring and career development advice.

This year’s Retreat will be held from November 11-13, 2022 at Hyatt Centric Park City located at 3551 N Escala Ct, Park City, UT 84060.
