Department of Neurosurgery

Residency Program


The mission of the Temple Neurosurgery Residency Program is to train a select group of academic neurosurgeons who will contribute to the advancement of our specialty with their surgical skills, leadership qualities and scholarly contributions.


Our Program offers aspiring neurosurgeons the opportunity to train at a Level I Trauma center, interact with a diverse patient population, and acquire excellent clinical and surgical experience with a large volume and diversity of operative cases. In addition, residents are integral to the department's educational mission, instructing both each other and medical students in the clinical and academic settings.


Research is an important aspect of the residency program, and is evidenced by both the amount of time devoted to such pursuits and the accomplishments of the residents. The Temple system offers many opportunities in both clinical and basic science research, and the resident has ample time to pursue projects in one or both areas. Residents are actively involved in the full research process: preparation of grants, project design, data accumulation, presentations and publication.
