Neurosurgery Residency Program

Our neurosurgical residency program is rooted in providing exceptional clinical education in a community hospital setting, embodying the spirit of service, and taking pride in our care for the underprivileged and underserved. As such, unlike most neurological surgery residency programs, we are not privileged with strong financial support from a university. This has limited our program’s research potential and educational opportunities. 

Scholarly activities, specifically clinical outcome research, is the basis for continuing quality improvement which directly impacts patient care. The excellence and continued accreditation of the program is anchored on scholarly inquiries. 

Your gift of support will help ensure our neurosurgical residency program will:

  • Strengthen existing clinical research and technological infrastructure

  • Nurture our residents’ well‐being

  • Advance educational opportunities

  • Help maintain patient care excellence 

  • Attract the brightest trainees for years to come
