A Public Service Citation is presented annually by the AANS Young Neurosurgeons Committee (YNC) to an individual actively engaged in neurosurgery training or in early years of practice. The Citation is for extraordinary or unusual public service by a young neurosurgeon outside of any service specific to organized neurosurgery. Suitable nominees serve the public through various means including, but not limited to, public charities, medical or socioeconomic mission work or governmental/legislative efforts.

The 2021 Citation will be presented at the YNC Luncheon at the 2021 AANS Annual Scientific Meeting in Vancouver.

Nominations to identify suitable candidates should include the following:

  1. Nominee name, address and email
  2. Year of completion, or anticipated completion, of neurosurgery training
  3. Submission of a nomination letter (250-300 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 who is submitting the nomination

Deadline for submission is February 15, 2021. Email nominations to Ginny Costello at
