ACCELERATING RESEARCH OPPORTUNITIES,
ACCENTUATING NEUROSURGERY
T
he AANS, through the NREF, is pleased to support the AANS Medical Student Summer Research
Fellows. Now in its sixth year, the fellowship program is designed to expose neurosurgical curriculum
to first- and second-year medical students — with the hope of piquing their interest in the specialty so
that they select neurosurgery when they make their decisions about residency training. The Fellowship is open
to medical students in the U.S. or Canada who have completed one or two years of medical school and wish to
spend a summer working in a neurosurgical laboratory, mentored by a neurosurgical investigator sponsor who
is a member of the AANS. The AANS supports up to twenty awards, with each award totaling $2,500. The 2013
Fellowship awardees are:
