No formal written or oral tests given. A short 15-minute topical presentation will be required for fourth year students who will be applying to the Neurosurgery Residency Program. Students’ performance is assessed by the faculty and residents who work with them for effort, proficiency and behavior. The staff will evaluate the individual student, and the preceptor will summarize the overall performance in the student evaluation form. Students who have problems will be counseled as needed.
