Johns Hopkins Admits First Black Female Neurosurgeon Into Residency Program

The most important day for fourth year medical students is the third Friday in March, when they find out where they have been accepted for their residency program. It’s called Match Day. For medical student Nancy Abu-Bonsrah, it also became the day she made history as the first Black woman to become a neurosurgery resident at Johns Hopkins Hospital.

After moving from Ghana to the United States with her parents at age 15, Abu-Bonsrah went on to earn a Bachelor of Science in biochemistry and chemistry from Mount St. Mary’s University. In 2012, she started her medical student journey at the prestigious Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, where she will graduate as the first doctor in her family. Upon completion of her neurosurgery training residency program, Abu-Bonsrah is also set to become the first Black woman neurosurgeon at Johns Hopkins. Abu-Bonsrah shared the good news on her personal Facebook page.

Congratulations for all your hard work, Nancy. Johns Hopkins, First Black Female Neurosurgeon Resident. Brava. You are an inspiration to girls everywhere and to think that you are an immigrant from Ghana.
