Inspiring the Next Generation of Neurosurgeons

Do you know a child you want to inspire? Written to encourage girls to follow their dreams, the downloadable book “I Want To Be A Neurosurgeon,” is available free of charge from the AANS/CNS Section on Women in Neurosurgery. Please check it out and share!

This free book was written to help attract the best and the brightest to neurosurgery. What could be better than learning about our profession from the eyes of children whose mothers are neurosurgeons? This beautiful book with wonderfully delightful pictures shares the true story of two friends of different backgrounds who are both neurosurgeons and mothers.

If you enjoy this book, please consider donating to the NREF Women in Neurosurgery Education Fund to help support and train future leaders.
