I have five months of experience in a primarily outpatient clinic-based position
evaluating and providing expert recommendations for a full spectrum of adult
neurosurgical problems at a large university-based academic institution working with
multiple neurosurgeons. I work closely with supervising physicians in performing
history and physical examinations, interpreting neurological imaging including plain
films, CT and MR studies, and devising diagnostic and therapeutic treatment plans for
new patient consultations and provide short and long term follow up post-surgical care.
I take advantage of every opportunity, when available, to first assist in surgery to
maintain my surgical skills.
Attendance to weekly academic lectures including grand rounds and conferences.
