The neurosurgery department at Columbia University Medical Center/NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital has a long history of fostering interest in neurosurgery among medical students here at the College of Physicians and Surgeons.
A group of medical students, Scott Widemon, Trae Robison, Blake Taylor, and Stephen Bowden, (all pictured above) have gotten so interested that they started a medical student chapter of the American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS) in Spring 2015.
The purpose of the AANS is to advance the study and continual improvement of neurological surgery for the highest quality patient care.
The medical student chapter of AANS at Columbia will promote neurosurgery to medical students, and encourage networking and building support among medical students, residents, and faculty members. Plans are in the works for teaching sessions about neurosurgery, and advice on research and residency opportunities.
