Medical Student Neuroanatomy Elective

Weill Cornell Neurosurgery Medical Student Neuroanatomy Elective

The Weill Cornell Surgical Innovations Laboratory medical student neuroanatomy elective encompasses surgical neuroanatomy and basic concepts of neurosurgery for visiting medical students nearing the end of their schooling who wish to peruse postgraduate specialty training in neurology, neurosurgery or otolaryngology. Neurosurgery is a broad field with a range of diagnostic and therapeutic interventions that target pathological processes affecting the brain, spine and peripheral nerves. This elective provides a comprehensive overview of clinically relevant surgical neuroanatomy, and ties in discussions of neurosurgical cases that include concepts of neuropathology, diagnostic techniques and available therapies.

This non-accredited elective is offered throughout the year, including summer, and provided without a fee for visiting medical students interested in neurosurgery. The elective is limited to visiting students currently enrolled in medical degree-granting programs, and not open to medical school graduates seeking admission to U.S. residency programs.

If interested in the medical student neuroanatomy elective, contact Dr. Antonio Bernardo: anb2029@med.cornell.edu.
