Neurological Surgery Acting Internship

Opportunities for a four-week Neurological Surgery Acting Internship are available for fourth-year medical students interested in a visiting rotation. The Acting Internship is directed by Krystal L. Tomei, MD.

In-depth Experience in Neurosurgery

Students in the Neurological Surgery Acting Internship Program participate actively as members of the neurosurgical team and come away from the rotation with in-depth experience in neurosurgery. Students observe cases in the operating room and are responsible for the postoperative care of patients under the supervision of the attending neurosurgeon and chief resident as well as attending clinics with faculty members each week. Students are also given the opportunity to make a brief presentation at one of the weekly neurosurgery conferences.
