Medical Students Acting Internships

The Medical College of Wisconsin Department of Neurological Surgery offers a 4-week Acting Internship (AI) to 4th year students. This AI provides an opportunity for students considering a residency in neurological surgery to work alongside our faculty and residents in all aspects of the discipline. Students will become familiar with a wide range of neurological diseases and interventions while working alongside international leaders in spine surgery, brain injury, and imaging research at a Level I trauma center.

Students will experience growth in their clinical acumen with care of complex patients involving traumatic, urgent, and elective spinal and cranial issues. Students will complete initial assessments, diagnosis and treatment plans, and, under the supervision of faculty and residents, implement treatment. In addition, students will participate in weekly didactic conferences. This 4-week Acting Internship runs from the end of June through mid-December each year.

Interested students may apply for the Acting Internship through the Visiting Student Application Service. The course number is NSUR D4210.
