            The profile that stuck with me was the policewoman Pat Hayes.  It stuck with me because in the beginning of the profile she talked about her abusive relationship with her ex-husband.  When she got into the police force she was assigned to help runaways with neglect or abuse.  She said it is a interest of hers cause she has been through it.  “I wanted to be somebody warm and who you could sit and feel comfortable talking to.” ( Isay 159).
            For my personal connection, I chose this profile because the policewoman is like my aunt.  My aunt is that person that who could sit there for hours and listen to what you have to say.  Even if it’s the dumbest thing she will sit there and listen to me rant and always have the right thing to say always.  And our relationship isn’t like the policewoman her and I is very good.
            I did my research on neurosurgeons and this is what I found.  A neurosurgeon is a physician who specializes in the diagnosis and surgical treatment of disorders of the central and peripheral nervous system including congenital anomalies, trauma, tumors, vascular disorders, infections of the brain or spine, stroke, or degenerative diseases of the spine.  The education and training to become a neurosurgeon is rigorous and extensive and includes the completion of:
  • ·      Four years of pre-medical education at a college or university
  • ·      Four years of medical school resulting in an M.D. or D.O. degree
  • ·      One year internship in general surgery
  • ·      Five to seven years in a neurosurgery residency program
  • ·      Some neurosurgeons complete a fellowship after residency to specialize in a particular area
  • ·      Continuing education — annual meetings, conferences, scientific journals, research — to keep up with advances made in the complex field of neurosurgery.

I use the University of Rochester Medical Center.  It is the school of medicine at the University of Rochester.  "What Is a Neurosurgeon?" What Is a Neurosurgeon - Neurosurgery - Highland Hospital - University of Rochester Medical Center.

  1. You have really good research on what a neurosurgeon does and how they become one. I had no idea what they have to go through to become a neurosurgeon.

  2. That's a great relationship you and your aunt have. Also, great research. I didn't know any of that about neurosurgeon.
