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.

To be considered for a Marshal Program position, please check the appropriate box when registering for the meeting online. Early registrants will receive priority consideration.

The AANS sends notice and instructions when sessions are ready for selection. Should you have further questions regarding the Marshal Program, contact the AANS Meetings Department at aansam@aans.org.

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.
