Description
Neurosurgery at SCVMC offers the student to fully participate in all areas of the service. One third year neurosurgery resident help run the service, which therefore allows greater exposure and time for the student with patients and the neurosurgical faculty. We usually have one or two medical students at a time and the students work closely with all members of the team, including the attending. The student is typically exposed to a wide spectrum of neurosurgical conditions, especially brain and spine trauma, brain tumors, cerebrovascular conditions and degenerative spine disease. During their clerkships, students are very much a member of the team and participate actively on the ward, clinic and OR. All faculty lead research projects at SCVMC and Stanford. Students are welcome to participate in these but most research projects will require longer term commitment beyond the one month clinical clerkship. Other educational activities include weekly neuroscience grand rounds, neuroradiology conference and tumor board. The advanced and diverse pathology seen and the often challenging patient population cared for at SCVMC compliments that experienced at SUMC. We welcome visiting students and early planning for this clerkship is recommended.
