Message from the Program Director

To learn the art of neurosurgery at an institution such as the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai is a life changing, career changing part of our resident’s lives. Through the diversity of cases, a focus on research and a supportive department, our residency program provides well-rounded training in all aspects of clinical neurosurgery.

During the seven years our future surgeons and researchers spend with us, we expose them early on to subspecialties and carve out a dedicated time for research. From first years to chiefs, we aim to foster professionalism, integrity and technical skills.

Our seven year program is comprised of

  • One year of internship
  • Four years of clinical training rotations through neurology, neuropathology, pediatric neurosurgery, endovascular neurosurgery, neuroradiology and radiosurgery
  • Two years of basic research/subspecialty neurosurgery training
