The American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS) is the organization that speaks for all of neurosurgery. The AANS is dedicated to advancing the specialty of neurological surgery in order to promote the highest quality of patient care.
The AANS chapter at Boonshoft School of Medicine has formed to encourage the representation of students interested in neurological surgery through specialty-specific educational forums, meetings and journal clubs. The chapter hopes to accomplish the encouragement of obtaining a residency in the field of neurological surgery and foster knowledge necessary for success in such endeavors. AANS student chapters provide early support and leadership training to medical students who wish to explore a career in neurosurgery.
