We are delighted that you are interested in joining the Department of Neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins as a medical student for either a sub-internship or a clinical elective in Neurosurgery.
In order to facilitate your experience with us, here is a brief introduction to the organization of our clinical activities.
We perform approximately 4,000 neurosurgical operations annually at 2 campuses. There are 3 adult services at the Johns Hopkins Hospital: Tumor, Spine, and Vascular/Functional. Each of these services is led by a Chief Resident and a Junior Resident. The Pediatric Neurosurgery service is based at the Children's Medical and Surgical Center in the Johns Hopkins Hospital.
Visiting medical students may also rotate at The Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center campus, located 2 miles from the Johns Hopkins Hospital. There is a convenient shuttle bus between the two campuses.
All visiting medical students spend a total of four weeks working closely with the Johns Hopkins faculty and residents on these services. While on each service, the visiting medical student will participate in conferences, rounds, operating rooms, and outpatient clinics.
Your rotation schedule will be mailed to you approximately one month prior to your arrival date.
We look forward to working with you.
