Fourth-year medical students enrolled in a Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) accredited medical school are eligible to apply for subinternship with the OU Department of Neurosurgery.
Eligible students should apply through the Visiting Student Application Service (VSAS) no later than April.
The OU Neurosurgery subinternship is designed to teach the rotating student the neurosurgical fundamentals that will form the foundation of their skills and decision-making as a surgeon. The subinterns will be supervised jointly by the residents and the attendings and are expected to scrub into cases daily. They will also be expected to attend at least one attending clinic. Further, each subintern will have an individual meeting with each attending neurosurgeon during their rotation.
At the end of the rotation, each subintern is expected to give a 10-15 minute presentation on a neurosurgical topic of their choice to the department.
