— On behalf of its affiliate, the Neurosurgery Research and Education Foundation (NREF), the American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS) is pleased to announce that the NREF has reached agreements with DePuy Synthes Spine and Medtronic who will provide funding in support of the foundation’s post-residency, clinical fellowship grant program. The following programs have been awarded fellowship grants for the 2014-2015 academic year: Cleveland Clinic for Spine Health, Duke University, Johns Hopkins University, Rush University Medical Center, Toronto Western Hospital (University Health Network), University of California, San Francisco; University of Miami, University of South Florida/ University of Medical Service Association, Inc., and University of Toronto.

“The NREF is grateful to our corporate sponsors who continue to help the NREF in its mission to ensure that tomorrow’s leaders in medicine receive cutting-edge training to expand their knowledge and improve patient care, ” stated Regis W. Haid Jr., MD, FAANS, NREF Development Committee chair.

The NREF is responsible for review and approval of grant applications and awards grants based upon established fellowship program criteria and the needs of the requesting hospital and/or academic institution. The NREF Educational Grants Committee (ECG) was established in the fall of 2009 to review and approve fellowship grant applications in an independent, unbiased manner. The committee is comprised of neurosurgeons who do not receive financial or other support from the medical device industry. Individuals serving on the Education Grants Committee are volunteers and do not receive compensation from the NREF for their efforts.

For more information about the post-residency, clinical fellowship funding program and all other NREF grants and awards, please contact Kristen Weber, NREF Chief Development Officer, at 847.378.0540 or kaw@aans.org.

How to build a strong foundation in medical education during high school?

I aspire to be a doctor, and I want to start getting ready early. What are some things I could do as a high school student to build a good medical foundation? I'm already going to a medical specialized magnet high school, and I'm planning on maximizing my time in medical classes. What else could I do?

If you can get a job at your local hospital it can really help, even if it is just cleaning or something. Also a lot of med schools or universities look for people who have done volunteer work. My advice to you though would be to speak to a medical professional and ask them as chances are they will know best what to do! good luck. (:
