Description:
Every year the University of Washington Department of Neurological Surgery invites a group of talented and highly motivated students interested in Neuroscience to participate in our 8-week Neurological Surgery Summer Student Program. This consists of a lab placement, attendance at Neurological Surgery Grand Rounds, OR observations, Friday talks by faculty to this group, and a final student Power Point presentation and graduation in front of family, friends and mentors.

Founded in 2008, the program has hosted 115 students from over 60 different schools. Twenty-four neurological surgery mentors have been involved and 22 Friday seminar speakers have volunteered time to talk with our summer group. Fourteen of our clinical faculty have given their time to afford shadowing opportunities for our students. Results can be measured by some of the testimonials noted below and also by the fact that 13 of the 50 students who have graduated from college have been accepted into medical school or graduate programs in Neuroscience. Historically, about 15% of our students have been from underrepresented minority groups and over half of our participants have been women.
