2012-2013 CNS/CSNS Medical Student Fellow

Steven Ryan Vidrine, MSIII
CNS/CSNS Medical Student Summer Fellowship in Socioeconomic Research

Steven Vidrine earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from St. Johnís University in Minnesota, where he majored in Nutrition Science and competed in Track and Field for 4 years. After that, he had his first introduction to the neurosciences while obtaining a Masters in Biological Sciences from Mississippi College. One year later, with intention to pursue a career in Neurosurgery, he began Medical School at Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center (LSUHSC) in Shreveport, Louisiana. Even as a first year student, he tried to become active in the LSU neurosurgery department as well as with other neurosurgeons in the community. He took part in research involving spinal cord stimulator placement and bladder nerve rerouting and developed an interest in skull based as well as functional neurosurgery. Now, beginning his 4th year of medical school, he is grateful to the CSNS/CNS for the privilege to investigate the socioeconomic impact of time to arrival at a tertiary care center and inter-hospital transfer of patients with severe head trauma, and he is anxiously looking forward to the process of interviewing and matching into a Neurosurgery residency program in the upcoming year.
