From the beginning of his career as the professor of neurosurgery, he put a major emphasis on education of neurosurgeons from all over the world. He held regular annual or biannual courses in microneurosurgery in the University of Mainz since 1971. In 1979, Professor Samii established the world’s first educational course in skull base surgery in Hannover. Aside from his regular courses in Germany, he started to plan similar educational courses in many countries all over the world to enhance the knowledge of neurosurgery. In 2004, as the president of INI-China, he organized a permanent annual international course in clinical neurosurgery. Also in 2004 the directory board of Iranian social security organization has offered Professor Samii the chairmanship of neurosurgical department in Milad hospital in Tehran. Under his leadership, a very strong educational program for the staff has been planned and performed. The department is now one of the most developed neurosurgical centers.
