Clinical Observers & Visiting Scholars

Learn at One of the Most Dynamic Centers for Neurology and Neurosurgery in the World

The visiting scholar and neuroscience observer program at Barrow Neurological Institute enhances the rigorous academic environment here. International scholars (fully trained neurosurgeons) who visit Barrow for short-term or extended stays greatly improve their understanding of what is possible in advanced clinical neurosurgery, as well as how the latest in neuroscience research translates into patient care. These scholars in turn enrich our learning environment by the unique international perspective they share with faculty and students on the treatment of neurosurgical patients around the world.
