The Ohio State Neurosurgical Society (OHSNS) is pleased to offer Medical Students, Residents and Fellows the opportunity to exchange the latest information in neurosurgery through scientific posters. The best case study and research abstracts will be selected for oral presentation.

This is an excellent opportunity to become involved in the OHSNS annual meeting and enhance your reputation within the neurosurgical community.

Submission & Review Process

The OHSNS invites physicians in Ohio neurosurgical residency and fellowship programs to participate in the annual education meeting by submitting abstracts regarding cutting-edge research, work-in-progress and clinical practice in the field of neurosurgery. The abstracts will be blinded and reviewed for quality and content.
