Welcome to Neurosurgery!
Your rotation on neurological surgery is a unique educational opportunity. We are passionate about the highest level of care for the most complicated patients in the hospital. You will be exposed to a wide variety of neurosurgical problems, this will expand your understandings of the nervous system. We are confident if you can submerge yourself in this experience you will enjoy yourselves and the experience working with our dedicated professionals in Neurosurgery.
It is important that you strengthen your clinical skills while you work with us in Neurosurgery. Specifically, develop your ability to perform a neurologic exam, review clinical neuroanatomy and neuroradiology as they apply to the patient you are exposed to, formulate differential diagnosis on new patient consults, strengthen your ability to present patients on rounds, and finally gain further experience scrubbing into the Neurosurgical operative theater.
As a M3 or M4 student, you are part of our team while with us on the service and that means you will participate in all aspects of the patient care: in-patient care, out-patient clinics, neurosurgical operations, endovascular cases, emergency room consults ,and bed side procedures. We are excited you are interested in rotating with us in Neurosurgery.
