The Citation is for extraordinary or unusual public service outside of any service specific to organized neurosurgery.

  1. Nominee name, address and email
  2. Year of completion, or anticipated year of completion, of neurosurgery training
  3. Submission of a nomination letter (250-500 words) detailing the nominee's recent and relevant history of public service; descriptive articles or other relevant material can also be submitted
  4. Name, address and email of the person submitting the nomination
