Neurosurgery Sub-Internship

Brian Dlouhy with residentThe Department of Neurologic Surgery at the University of Iowa encourages medical students from the University of Iowa, as well as students from other medical schools, to experience four-weeks immersed in the Iowa neurosurgical service.

Students are usually senior medical students interested in pursuing a career in neurosurgery with a desire to get more hands-on experience and see how the residency program works.

Sub-Intern activities

The Sub-intern will spend time on the adult and pediatric services rounding with the residents, scrubbing into the operating room cases, and working up patients with the on-call residents. Students will also have an opportunity to present to the department on a topic of their choice, typically a research topic they have spent time on.
