Extracurricular Activities

U-M Neurosurgery residents enjoy a strong sense of camaraderie, and it is not unusual for residents and their families to get together for dinners, watch football, work out, or even vacation together. Throughout the year, the Neurosurgery Department sponsors several parties and social events including the following:

  • Welcome party in August/September honoring new interns and fellows
  • Annual Seafood & Soup Bonfire/Halloween party
  • Annual Holiday party in December
  • Annual Neurosurgery vs. ENT athletic showdown in Spring – whether it’s softball or football, the U-M Neurosurgery Department holds a perfect record against our Otolaryngology colleagues
  • Motor City Golf Classic to benefit the University of Michigan Department of Neurosurgery
  • Up-North Retreat in Harbor Springs, MI each fall/winter
  • End-of-year banquet honoring chief residents
