My educational internship with the Institute of Neuro Innovation was deeply engaging. Dr. Vokshoor made a point of keeping me involved throughout the week, whether that meant gathering patient information, taking clinical photographs, or observing surgeries. Dr. Vokshoor took time out of his busy schedule to explain different cases, and was more than willing to answer any questions that I had.
