All rotations are a minimum of four weeks in length. This is to assure students receive an optimal neurosurgical experience, with one week spent in each of the following areas: Tumor, Spine, Vascular/Functional, Pediatrics
The most popular months for sub-internships are June, July, August, and September. If you wish to rotate during these months, early application is strongly encouraged.
All applications must be received no later than 2 months prior to the start date of your sub-internship. Example: if your desired time frame for a sub-internship is October 1-October 31st, your application and supporting documents need to be completed and returned by August 1st.
Completion of a visiting subinternship is not required to match in our program. Many of our current residents did not complete a visiting elective rotation with us. Although we will give your application every consideration, completion of a visiting subinternship does not automatically lead to an interview.
Before Your Elective:
Students enrolled in U.S. medical schools must have an NPI number before beginning a rotation. Please follow this link to apply for an NPI number if you do not have one already: https://nppes.cms.hhs.gov/NPPES/Welcome.do
Once at website, select the link: “If you are a Health Care Provider, the National Provider Identifier (NPI) is your standard unique identifier”
You do not need an NPI number at the time of application, but will need it to be approved for a rotation. Please provide your NPI number to the Medical Training Programs Coordinator as soon as you receive it. If you have any further questions, please contact Stacie Grant (email@example.com), Department of Neurosurgery Medical Training Programs Coordinator.
