From Ibni Sina (Avicenna) to Present, History of International Fellowship and Observership: University of Wisconsin-Madison Experience

Since the inception of the International Fellowship (IF) Program in the Department of Neurological Surgery at the University ofWisconsin-Madison in 2006, training has been provided to 219 residents, neurosurgeons, and medical students from 18 countriesand five continents. These IFs took a long academic and geographic journey to improve their skills in patient care. The advancedtraining, they received lead to 14 of these IF neurosurgeons to return to their hometowns with higher academic appointments,including two chairmen, seven professors, two associate professors, two assistant professors, and one consultant neurosurgeon.An additional measure of success for the IF Program is that fellows continue to communicate with their mentors and with their priorfellow international colleagues long after their fellowship ends.
