Explore your educational options with us through a sub-internship/externship in neurosurgery.

The University of Kansas Medical Center Department of Neurosurgery held in-person resident applicant interviews for the 2023-2024 interview season (for matched applicants who would start July 1, 2024). We anticipate we will hold in-person interviews again for the 2024-2025 interview season (for matched applicants starting July 1, 2025). Please contact Margaret Minea at for more information.

We are proud to offer visiting fourth-year medical students a chance to learn more about the neurosurgery specialty and our training program at KU Medical Center.
