NSURG 300 - Neurosurgery


Christina Notarianni, M.D., Clerkship Director

2 credit hours

Students will gain exposure to a clinical neurosurgical practice in both an outpatient and inpatient setting. The students will attend daily inpatient rounds at LSUHSC and will have the opportunity to scrub in on a variety of neurosurgical operations. They will attend faculty and resident clinics to observe the management of neurosurgical patients in an outpatient setting. Didactic one-on-one teaching with the medical students by the neurosurgical faculty and attendance at the weekly case conference will help students gain additional knowledge on neurosurgical conditions and interpretation of radiologic exams as it pertains to neurosurgical pathology. This overall goal of this rotation is to teach medical students the basic approach and management of common neurosurgical diseases so they may apply this knowledge as needed regardless of their final medical specialty.
