Medical Student Testimonials
…Prof. Abdulrauf is an awesome doctor and was able to teach so much in such a short time. Im very happy to be part of the first Dandy 101 course in Brazil. Looking forward for the next one.– Ciro Eduardo Meira Fortes, Universidade Severino Sombra
I thought the course was amazing. To begin with, Prof. Abdulrauf not only gave an excellent class, but also motivated all students that were there to get to know Neurosurgery by knowing Neuroanatomy – which is fundamental. The interactive kind of class gave us the opportunity to think together and learn a lot more than the old-fashioned kind of class. I was very happy to be there and hope there are other courses in Brazil, maybe longer!– Daniela Macêdo de Moraes, Unifesp/ Hospital São Paulo
It was an amazing experience. Usually there aren’t many courses regarding Neurosurgery in Brazil, especially with foreign teachers. Hearing a lecture in another language is really important to test your knowledge and your comprehension on a subject, considering you have to double your attention in order to understand everything. In other words, it was a very enriching experience and I’d like to repeat it, if possible.– Nathalia Rabello da Silva Sousa, FAMERP
It was a very interesting 101 course and increased my knowledge about neurosurgery. It’s a complicated area of medicine and the physicians made it all so clear, I really enjoyed it. Very good.– Juliana Keiko Toyoda, Universidade de Marilia
The course was great!! It taught us not only techinical aspects about medicine, but also gave us a whole new perspective of the neurosurgical specialty, both professionally and personally.
We also had the opportunity of getting to know Prof. Abdulrauf, who got really interested in us and our projects. He was really “accessible”, and encouraged us on our path to neurosurgery and through medicine itself.

The course was a contribution to my graduation. I enjoyed the way the content was exposed. Would like more such events in Brazil.
