Residency

Neurosurgery Research Year (PGY-6)

An independent research project under the auspices of a research mentor from the faculty of the Department of Neurological Surgery is the focus of the PGY-6 year of residency.

The resident will choose a faculty research mentor and will work under his or her direct supervision. The resident formulates a clearly delineated research project at the beginning of the year and schedules regular meetings with the program director and research mentor to evaluate his or her progress. Additionally, clinical research collaboration with other departments, as well as the medical school and its basic science infrastructures, is strongly encouraged. Alternatively, an integrated fellowship can be arranged at the resident’s request, contingent upon availability and the program director's approval.
