Student rotations

MS 3 Selective Rotations

Selective rotations are scheduled for Zucker SOM Students that have a special interest in Neurosurgery, and would like to spend some additional time prior to their formal MS4 rotation year on the service.  A preceptor is assigned to the student according to the student’s interest in a neurosurgical subspecialty, offering guidance throughout this two-week rotation.  Selective rotations are scheduled by contacting Josefa Forcina ([email protected]).

Elective Rotations and Sub Internship Rotations

Elective rotations are offered to visiting students in addition to students from the Zucker School of Medicine.  All Zucker School of Medicine Students are scheduled for rotations by contacting Josefa Forcina ([email protected]).

Visiting students attending US LCME Accredited Medical Schools and participating Osteopathic Medical Schools are required to submit their elective rotation requests through AAMC Visiting Student Application Service (VSAS) at https://students-residents.aamc.org/attending-medical-school/article/visiting-student-learning-opportunities.  We do not accept students from Off-Shore/Foreign Medical Schools.  Further information on the rotation requirements are listed on the Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra/Northwell website at https://medicine.hofstra.edu/education/visiting/index.html

For residents
The Independent Clinical Fellowship in Neurocritical Care has been designed to educate neurosurgical fellows in the care of complex and diverse critically ill patients with primary or secondary neurologic injury, with a strong focus on neurotrauma.
