Thank you for your interest in the Neurological Surgery Residency Program at UCSF. The central objective of our Residency Program is the training of academic neurosurgeons. While providing a residency program that meets the demands and realities of a changing health care environment, we select residents who have the aptitude and desire to enter full-time academic neurosurgery. The Department of Neurological Surgery has a large full-time faculty representing a wide range of interests and backgrounds. These include state of the art clinical care, as well as translational and basic research programs. We consider the training of academic neurosurgeons a responsibility and our contribution to the vitality and advancement of our discipline.
In addition to our world-renowned residency program, we provide an active schedule of seminars, journal clubs, and lecture programs, including two distinguished lectureships each year.
