After developing her neurosurgical career around the world, including the AANS Visiting Surgeon Fellowship in the United States, international member Claire Karekezi, MD, returns to her home country of Rwanda this month as the first female neurosurgeon in her country. Dr. Karekezi was the recipient of one of two 2016 AANS International Visiting Surgeon Fellowships and carried out her fellowship at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital at Harvard Medical Center under the guidance of Ennio Antonio Chiocca, MD, PhD, FAANS, and at the Golby Lab, run by Alexandra J. Golby, MD, FAANS. Upon her return, Dr. Karekezi hopes to collaborate with her colleagues in Rwanda to launch a neuro-oncology center.
