It is the general philosophy of this program that, as a resident, you participate actively in the management of patients in the operating room. You are expected to progress rapidly in the development of the skills of operative neurosurgery. Although you are provided considerable clinical freedom and the opportunity for clinical practice, there is a longstanding tradition of very close supervision and support from the faculty.
The program lasts seven years, and strongly incorporates basic science with clinical care. You will be provided training in all aspects of neurosurgery, be exposed to a broad range of clinical experiences, and participate in neurosurgical research.
We now have a very active clinical and research program. You can view our surgical caseload and see the number and distribution of cases. You can also view our facilities and get a sense of working and living environment here in our beautiful and quaint city of San Antonio.
