When research and clinical practice meet. Pursuing the dream of becoming a neurosurgeon.
Some may believe that being a young medical student, before your clinical years, does not allow you to get involved in many extracurricular activities, let alone to do research. Samuel Pettersson’s example proves that this is not the case.
With several articles already published (and more waiting in peer review) – some in world-class neurosurgical journals – and coordination of multiple projects, this ambitious 2nd year medical student from Boston, MA aims to become a neurosurgeon.
The major research he now leads is a multicentre cohort study involving 5 hospitals and attempting to assess the efficacy of utilizing two alternative methods of entering the fourth ventricle, a cavity in the upper part of medulla.
Student, researcher and author of scientific papers, pursuing his goal of becoming a neurosurgeon, involved in multiple scientific projects. His biggest one yet involves 5 hospitals and attempts to asses efficacy of two alternative methods of entering the fourth ventricle, a cavity in the upper part of medulla. The study gathers massive amounts of data and measures both benefits and risk of two approaches.
