Education in the Department of Neurosurgery
Education in the Department of Neurosurgery provides training at all levels of practice.
Medical students can take part in electives and acting internships that introduce them to the basic and intermediate principles of evaluating and managing patients with neurosurgical disease, or join a 3+7 neurosurgery accelerated pathway that provides early entry into residency.
The seven-year ACGME-accredited neurosurgery residency also has six fellowships - endovascular, functional, neurocritical care, neuro-oncology, peripheral nerve and spine - accredited by the Society of Neurological Surgeons’ Committee for Advanced Subspecialty Training and offered only as enfolded fellowships to internal residents.
For practitioners, the department helps to organize a number of continuing medical education opportunities each year.
