Residency Program Curriculum
Neurological surgery is a medical discipline and the surgical subspecialty that addresses the operative and non-operative management of disorders of the central and peripheral nervous systems.
The seven year training program offers a solid foundation in neurological surgery providing instruction in the format of the ACGME’s Core Competencies:
- Medical Knowledge
- Patient Care
- Interpersonal and Communication Skills
- Practice Based Learning and Improvement
- Systems Based Practice
Beginning in 2013, each trainee’s progress will be assessed in the framework of the ACGME’s Milestone and the SNS’ Matrix projects. These two tools will enable the faculty and Program Director to objectively assess each resident’s progress and identify gaps in knowledge or experience.
