2021 Medical Student MISSION Fellowship

Medical students interested in neurosurgery as a career are urged to apply for the Young Neurosurgeons Committee’s (YNC) 2021 Medical Student MISSION Fellowship.

Applicants will propose a research topic that addresses a system/practice issue. The completed project will be presented as an abstract at the spring YNC meeting at the completion of the fellowship. The $1,000 annual award is given for the fellow to travel to the AANS Annual Scientific Meeting.
