Newswise — SAN DIEGO (April 15, 2019) — Winner of the Byron Cone Pevehouse Young Neurosurgeons Award, Debraj Mukherjee, MD, presented his research, Annual Meeting Involvement and Research Productivity of AANS Medical Student Chapters, during the 2019 American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS) Annual Scientific Meeting.
In 2014, the Young Neurosurgeons Committee (YNC) of the AANS established a program that allows individual medical schools to create AANS Medical Student Chapters. The purpose of this study was to assess the professional, educational and research activities of these chapters.
Since their inception, AANS Medical Student Chapters have increased in number significantly and demonstrated substantial research productivity and involvement in organized neurosurgery, particularly chapters from highly ranked medical schools and residency programs.
