Congrats are in order for neurosurgery resident Nancy Abu-Bonsrah. The medical student made history by becoming the first black woman to train as a neurosurgeon at Johns Hopkins medical School.
Abu-Bonsrah, who moved to the United States from Ghana at 15 says that she will be the first physician in her family.
“I hope to be able to go back to Ghana over the course of my career to help in building sustainable surgical infrastructure,” she continued. “I will be matching into neurosurgery, a field that I am greatly enamored with, and hope to utilize those skills in advancing global surgical care.”
Abu-Bonsrah will begin her residency next year.
