Our educational mission: Training highly skilled neurosurgeons with a strong background in clinical neurosurgery and research. We equip our neurosurgical residents with excellent clinical skills, stimulate their interest in teaching and research, demonstrate the relevance and enjoyment of continuing education, and provide them the skills and judgment to practice neurosurgery safely and competently.

Experienced neurosurgeons and researchers closely monitor trainees, providing them with progressive responsibility that nurtures clinical skills and the judgment necessary for the practice of safe and competent neurosurgery. Just as excellence is the legacy of our department, our goal is to pass that legacy along to future generations of neurosurgeons.
