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.
