As this year’s Chief Neurosurgery Residents at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York City, we are proud of our exceptional group. We’d like to introduce you to who our neurosurgery residents are: Our backgrounds, education, research endeavors, clinical and academic interests, future goals, personal interests, and our personalities, too.
Our diverse group of neurosurgery resident physicians comes from all over the United States and the world, each one of us with a unique story and qualities that make us strong members of our team. The neurosurgery faculty genuinely care about our professional journeys, and the overall environment at Mount Sinai provides the tools we need to become competent, well-trained academic neurosurgeons. And we know that once we graduate, our co-residents will continue to bestow a comfortable, encouraging, and fun culture for one another—an atmosphere created to support each other through this challenging seven-year training program.
We hope that by learning about us and our co-residents, our program’s dedication to resident wellness, education, professional development, and advocacy will shine through, showing you why Mount Sinai is a national leader in neurosurgical training.
Please make sure to connect with us if you have any questions. To learn more about the history of our residency program, check out our publication in the Journal of Neurosurgery (a subscription may be required), which is a first-of-its kind analysis looking back on 75 years of neurosurgery training at Mount Sinai. Please check out the brochure and video about our program, too!
