Elective Report: A European Take on Neuro-Anesthesia

Ambica Parmar


Within Graz, Austria, a small city of approximately 250 000 residents, lies an underappreciated Medical University. Dedicated to teaching, the LKH-Universitätsklinikum hospital in Graz is frequently visited by both European and Asian medical students as a part of their medical training. My opportunity to complete a 4-week elective in the department of Neuro-anesthesia was invaluable in my understanding of the anesthesia specialty and the technological advancements specific to this subspecialty. Unlike the more popular international electives in third world countries, the focus of interest was not on the development of underprivileged health care systems, but rather, the importance of international collaboration towards the betterment of medical care.
