[152 Hours]
This clinical clerkship allows student considering a residency in neurological surgery to assist faculty and residents in all aspects of the neurosurgery service, as well as interact with faculty from other departments who regularly work with the Department of Neurosurgery. A clerkship is highly recommended for students interested in applying to the LSUHSC Department of Neurosurgery residency training program. Students become an integral part of the Neurosurgery service, assisting members of the house staff and faculty. Activities include ward and ICU rounds, assisting in the OR, taking night call, and attending grand rounds and other teaching conferences. This rotation amounts to a “sub-internship” in Neurosurgery and offers the motivated student an excellent opportunity to contribute to an active Neurosurgery service. The student will share in the work-up and care of patients at West Jefferson Medical Center (WJMC), University Medical Center (UMC) New Orleans, and Children’s Hospital New Orleans (CHNOLA).
