History of WINS

History of Women in Neurosurgery

(WINS, Incorporated)

The main goal of the organization is to promote a cooperative and supportive environment among women practicing neurosurgery, including those in training to become neurosurgeons. As the group has grown, it has become an international organization with members in Asia, Europe and Africa.

Membership is open to Board Certified/Board Eligible neurosurgeons and neurosurgery residents. Medical students, nurse practitioners, physician assistants and any others who are interested in participating in the group are welcome to become non-voting members. There are three officer positions within the group: the President, President-Elect and the Secretary-Treasurer. Each year at the Congress of Neurological Surgeons meeting, the membership elects a new Secretary/Treasurer. The Presidents of the organization have been:
