Undergraduate Education

All members of the division participate in undergraduate education by supervising clerkship and elective students, involvement in OSCE examinations, and teaching clinical skills during the formal transition period from lecture and seminar-based studies to the clinical clerkship. Several division members undertake a heavier formal teaching role in years 1 and 2 by providing undergraduate lectures and supervising cased based learning groups in the neuroscience curriculum.

External clerks

Medical students from other universities frequently choose to take their electives at the University of Ottawa through our Division of Neurosurgery as part of their surgical clerkships. Candidates are required to apply through the University of Ottawa's Faculty of Medicine and can do so anytime throughout the year.
