INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (March 5, 2020) — Goodman Campbell Brain and Spine, one of North America’s largest neurosurgical practices advancing the health of adults and children with neurological disorders, announces a new partnership with Marian University to provide learning opportunities to medical students. This partnership is one of a handful of independent practices Marian University works with for clinical rotation placements.
“Our team is excited to continue our organization’s long-standing academic mission to provide quality learning opportunities,” said Dr. Jean-Pierre Mobasser, president of Goodman Campbell Brain and Spine. “We look forward to opening our doors for Marian University students each semester to gain critical skills necessary for treating patients diagnosed with mild to life-altering conditions.”
This summer, Goodman Campbell physicians will begin serving as clinical associate professors in Marian University’s College of Osteopathic Medicine offering third and fourth-year medical students the chance to gain hands-on experience at the clinic, hospitals and in the operating rooms. Students will rotate through the practice’s subspecialties including brain, spine, interventional neuroradiology, pediatric neurosurgery, interventional pain and research. In addition, they will accompany physicians at collaborative spine, tumor and vascular medical conferences.
“We’re beyond delighted to partner with Goodman Campbell because it’s very apparent how much the organization values teaching the next generation of physicians,” said Dr. Donald Sefcik, dean of the Marian University College of Osteopathic Medicine. “Their mission to deliver superior neurosurgical care using the latest technologies and treatments will provide our medical students opportunities to train and research in a state-of-the-art environment.”
