  UVA vs UVA-NIH
Posted by: Guest - 11-02-2020, 11:35 PM - Forum: On the trail - Replies (7)

Besides spending 3.5 years at the NIH vs 2 years of research in the UVA program (which apparently can also be done at the NIH), are there any big differences between the two? I'm guessing both set you up well for academic neurosurgery.

Does anyone know what the clinical experience is like at the NIH?

  Skull Base Fellowships
Posted by: Dorello - 10-30-2020, 04:35 PM - Forum: Fellowship application - Replies (2)

What are considered good skull base fellowships, in terms of research vs clinical? I’m asking about skull base tumor and cerebrovascular programs. For example, Cornell’s seem like observerships.

  Hobbies?
Posted by: skullbased69 - 10-14-2020, 02:56 PM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (2)

For the nsgy residents/attendings out there? Do you have any hobbies?

As a med student, I love the high acuity (or high stakes) parts of nsgy (vascular/tumor). However, I also value having a life outside of the hospital. I haven’t seen a thread on this yet so I thought I would bring it up. Is it possible to balance dedication to cerebrovascular neurosurgery and non-neurosurgery interests?
