CaMSIGN Blog and Resources

CaMSIGN’s Blog is an educational platform that encourages research amongst medical students. Led by Dr. Jasleen Saini (PGY-1, University of Toronto) and Abrar Ahmed (University of Western Ontario), the blog will feature condensed summaries of key papers in the field of neurosurgery ranging from basic science, translational research, and clinical findings.

The Blog also features resources that prepare students for the neurosurgery residency match and highlights clinical pearls, interview suggestions and how to shine for prospective applicants. As CaMSIGN grows, we envision this to morph into a central hub for neurosurgical research summaries and encourage further pursuit of research by medical students in Canada & beyond.
