Description

During the Cornell/Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center Neurosurgical Elective, students spend three weeks at Cornell and rotate for one-week to Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. Please refer to Cornell Web site for course description. Please note that only 4th/final year students are eligible to rotate to Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.

There is a dual application process for this elective. In addition to submitting an application to Cornell, all students must complete the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center application that corresponds with their status. Students DO NOT need to send an additional application fee to Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. There is a possibility that an applicant will not be accepted for the one-week rotation at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.
