Duke Neurosurgery Scholar Awards Recipients
Since neurosurgery represents a lifelong endeavor of continual learning and self-improvement, the Duke training program started this award in 2005 to recognize the resident who has demonstrated the most consistent and successful attempt to maintaining a high level of academic advancement throughout the entire year.
This is based on success on in-house assessment of conference lectures (70 percent), national board exam score (20 percent), and publication achievement (10 percent).
Winners are recognized with a plaque and prize.
