Resident, Fellow and Medical Student Sessions
The 2020 AANS Annual Scientific Meeting features an array of programming options designed specifically for residents, fellows and medical students. Click below to explore the schedule of scientific programming.
AANS Marshal Program
The Marshal Program provides valuable volunteer experience and allows one resident, fellow or medical student access to attend each Practical Clinic, Breakfast Seminar and Sunrise Sessions at no cost.
In addition to attending a free session, volunteers receive networking opportunities with senior AANS members and are introduced to serving the community of organized neurosurgery.
Responsibilities may include:
- Answering questions related to the AANS 360 App throughout the meeting;
- Marshaling the Practical Clinic, Breakfast Seminar or Sunrise Session you attend (instructions will be provided); and
- Assisting in-session operation during Practical Clinic, Breakfast Seminar or Sunrise Sessions as directed.
Contact the AANS Meetings Department at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in becoming a volunteer. Priority is given to medical students and residents, especially those who have marshaled in the past. Early in 2020, you will receive a form to complete and submit that indicates session preferences.
Young Neurosurgeons Research Forum
The Young Neurosurgeons Research Forum provides medical students, residents and fellows a platform to present scientific abstracts to both peers and a panel of judges.
The top-rated abstract presentations in four categories receive Donald O. Quest Science Awards.
