University of British Columbia Medical Students

UBC Pre-clerkship medical students who wish to arrange an observership with one of our neurosurgeons should contact Ms. Sachiyo Kaneko for availability and further information.

UBC Third year clinical clerks may arrange a neurosurgery elective as:

  • an option for their 2-week selective during their surgery rotation, which must be coordinated through the Depatment of Surgery and/or
  • an option for their 2-week third year elective, which must be coordinated through the Faculty of Medicine.

UBC Fourth year clinical clerks can arrange a 2 or 4 week neurosurgery elective through the one-45 elective scheduling system.

Visiting Medical Students

All visiting student electives are coordinated centrally by the UBC Faculty of Medicine Visiting Elective Program. Once successfully placed, the Division of Neurosurgery will contact the student with further details on the rotation requirements and schedule.
