Nancy Abu-Bonsrah Becomes First Black Female Johns Hopkins Neurosurgeon Resident
A black female med school grad is making waves for her history-making accomplishment. Nancy Abu-Bonsrah has become the first black female resident of Johns Hopkins School of Medicine’s neurosurgical department.
According to CNN, the highly prestigious program is very selective and accepts just two to five residents. It’s also ranked second in the country.
“I am very much interested in providing medical care in underserved settings, specifically surgical care,” said Abu-Bonsrah 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.”
Dr. Ben Carson was a neurosurgeon resident at Johns Hopkins.
Nancy’s husband Kwabena, is also studying medicine as a 3rd-year medical student at University of Maryland. After completing her residency, Nancy will become the first physician in her family.
Black girl magic indeed!
