Description
An advanced clerkship designed to actively engage the student in the diagnosis, operative treatment, and post-operative care of patients suffering from a wide variety of neurosurgical problems including tumors of the brain and spine, cerebrovascular abnormalities, infection, trauma, and congenital abnormalities of the central and peripheral nervous system. Subintern students assume a high level of responsibility, essentially functioning at the level of a first-year resident (intern), managing complex, acutely ill patients, scrubbing in on cases in the operating room, and functioning as an accountable team member. Among the responsibilities are: (1) primary work-ups of new patients; (2) writing orders, managing patients in conjunction with a resident or attending, and conducting appropriate intern-level procedures; (3) taking night call; (4) writing notes and dictating summaries as assigned by the supervising resident(s). Please note: Visiting students must obtain approval from the Department prior to applying for this clerkship. Email requests to Shanna Selsor at selsor@stanford.edu along with your CV, cover letter, at least 1 letter of recommendation.
