The department participates in a basic neuroscience course for freshman students. There is also a clinical sub-specialty rotation option for junior year students during their Surgery Rotation. The interested senior students will be able to complete a 4-week clinical rotation during the block of their choosing. We also offer elective clinical rotations for students from away institutions through the Visiting Student Application Service (VSAS). Special expertise in nerve lesions and their surgical management attracts residents from other neurosurgical programs as well as other surgical disciplines in other institutions so that students have a broad exposure to personnel from other institutions as well as our own. Should you have any questions regarding a student rotation, please email Jennifer Bordelon at jbord7@lsuhsc.edu.
