Ghanian lady emerges Johns Hopkins first black female neurosurgeon resident
.
.
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 U.S. 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. Abu-Bonsrah got even more good news with her acceptance letter: Her husband, Kwabena Yamoah, was also accepted to a Johns Hopkins residency program. .
.
“I want to be remembered for serving my community, whether it is through providing quality surgical care or helping mentor the next generation of surgeons. Unique thing: Everything is special about the match. It will be a dream come true,” she said.
