Educational Opportunities

The Program will assist medical students interested in applying for a dedicated Duke Third Year research program and construct a productive research plan.

There are also openings for talented undergraduate, medical or graduate students and neurosurgical residents who wish to work in the lab.  Those that are interested and motivated in having a productive research experience, with a combination of clinical experience and clinical research are welcomed.

The Neuro-Outcomes Program provides opportunities for students with biostatistics, data mining, epidemiology backgrounds or those who seek experience in these areas.  Members of the Program are expected to be highly productive and participate in all aspects of research including generation of their own unique hypotheses, statistical analysis plans and submission of high quality manuscripts and presentations.

Interested students should send their CV and brief letter of interest to Dr. Lad at
