Residency

Neurosurgery Senior Training (PGY-4/PGY-5)

PGY-4s and PGY-5s are integrated into a two-year rotation as senior residents. The two years are divided into three blocks of eight-month rotations on the pediatric and spinal service and interventional and peripheral nerve rotation with orthopedics. For each rotation, the senior resident will be assigned to a team of attending physicians and will have a direct supervisory role over their designated junior residents.

Residents must demonstrate a command of all competency-based principles of patient care, medical knowledge, interpersonal and communication skills, and professionalism, as well as surgical procedures for each of the rotations. The goal at the end of this training period is for senior residents to have completed all of the surgical and procedural requirements.
