Medical Student Program

Neurological Surgery Clerkships

There are several different clerkships offered by the Department of Neurological Surgery.

Neurological Surgery is a wonderful field, and we are pleased to have you join us. We will provide you with a good foundation for further study and knowledge that you will use throughout the remainder of your medical career.

In addition to the requirements described here, attitude, interest and effort are all essential for a good 4-week clerkship.

Students with any concerns should feel free to contact the clerkship or site directors. It is our sincere goal to make the Neurological Surgery clerkship exciting, fun, educational, rigorous, and fair. Another avenue for concerns about the learning environment is
