The Department of Neurological Surgery offers elective third-year clerkships and fourth-year
The department of neurological surgery will support a limited number of medical students via our Medical Student Scholar Program. If you are currently doing research with a member of our faculty, please download and fill out our Medical Student Scholar Program Application and email it to education coordinator Nate Arnold for review.
Applications will be reviewed twice yearly, July 1 and May 1 for the academic school year and summer research blocks, respectively. Notifications will be made by e-mail by July 15 and May 15 respectively.
No multi-student projects are permitted. Support totals $2,500 for part-time work between September 1 and May 1 (academic school year block) or for full-time work between May 20 and July 20 (summer block).
Medical students committed to careers in neurological surgery from around the country are invited to join our team as sub-interns for four weeks during the summer and fall of their fourth year of medical school as an opportunity to get to know us better. This rotation is divided into four one week rotations to ensure exposure to all of the important parts of our dynamic service including our adult and pediatric neurosurgical services.
Visiting sub-interns are expected to round with the residents in the morning, prepare for and attend cases in the OR throughout the day, assist with the call pager, attend selected faculty clinics and attend resident and student teaching conferences as they occur throughout the month.
Visiting sub-interns are expected to take call approximately every four days with the understanding that they observe resident work hour restrictions.
Visiting sub-interns are asked to present a brief talk on the neurosurgical topic of their choosing toward the end of the experience with our team.
Visiting sub-internships are encouraged to apply for rotation with our team between May and September in order to complete the experience and obtain a letter of recommendation prior to submitting your application for neurosurgical residency. Please note, many of our faculty are away during the month of August, therefore sub-interns may gain less exposure to our faculty during that month.
Completion of a sub-internship does not guarantee an invitation for a residency interview
