Program Philosophy: Our goals in training Neurosurgery Residents are (1) to develop clinical skills including accurate and concise diagnosis, proficient surgical technique, excellent patient management, personal maturity, and a humanistic approach to patients; (2) to instill a deep commitment to academic and research pursuits, including the ability to perform and analyze clinical and basic research, facility in writing and public speaking, with an emphasis on creativity and innovation; and (3) to acquire a broad and deep knowledge of medicine and neurosurgery. We aim to train the future leaders in Neurosurgery. The Stanford Neurosurgery Residency Program provides each resident with progressive surgical and patient management responsibility commensurate with his/her level of experience and core competencies. By the end of our training program, residents will be well versed in the theoretical aspects of neurosurgery, be fully trained in the bedside care of neurosurgical patients, be proficient technical neurosurgeons, and be able to design, execute, and critically evaluate neurosurgical clinical, translational, and basic research.
