Dr Nancy Abu-Bonsrah: First black female neurosurgery resident at Johns Hopkins
LISTEN MAR 27, 2017

In the 30 years that Johns Hopkins School of Medicine's neurosurgical department has accepted residents, there has never been a black woman in the ranks.

Now, Nancy Abu-Bonsrah is making history. The prestigious program accepts just two to five residents, and is ranked second in the country. Among its most notable alumni: Dr. Ben Carson, who is now the United States secretary of Housing and Urban Development.

    "I am very much interested in providing medical care in underserved settings, specifically surgical care," Abu-Bonsrah said in a statement. "I hope to be able to go back to Ghana over the course of my career to help in building sustainable surgical infrastructure."

    Abu-Bonsrah lived in Ghana until she was 15, and also attended Johns Hopkins medical school.
