The goal of our program is to produce neurosurgeons with highly developed clinical judgment, expert surgical skills, and an outstanding expertise in basic research. Graduates of this program are fully prepared to enter clinical practice and are also equipped to begin a career in academic medicine. We are glad that you are considering our program, and we hope that this site will give you the necessary information to make an educated decision about our residency program.
Our facility regenerates and expands on what the best and the brightest have to offer in this field. The Department of Neurosurgery has reconstructed itself in order to broaden our capabilities, and the faculty members at UTHSCSA are notably the driving force behind this outstanding program, with special training in Pediatric Neurosurgery, Neuro-Trauma and Critical Care, Functional Neurosurgery, Vascular Neurosurgery and Neurosurgical Oncology. By giving residents the opportunity to learn and grow under such an elite group of professionals, we are not only preparing for our future, but yours as well.
