The OHSU Residency Program in Neurological Surgery announced the results of the 2011 match. For the 2nd year in a row, OHSU has matched two women to the program. Despite the completion of Chief Residency by one woman this year, OHSU will be amongst those programs nationally that are leading the influx of highly qualified women into neurosurgical training (with 4 female residents, or 29%).
