About the Residency Program
The graduate education program of the University of Cincinnati and the Mayfield Clinic provides education and training in neurological surgery. The six-year program also includes rotations in general surgery, neurology, anesthesia, neurocritical care, and it includes a full year of clinical or bench research.
A large attending staff with diverse expertise administers clinical neurosurgical training at four affiliated hospitals:
Residents who successfully matriculate become proficient in the use of advanced technologies and techniques in cranial, spinal and peripheral nerve surgeries. They become expert at clinical evaluation, application and interpretation of state-of-the-art diagnostic procedures, and they become accomplished in the methods of neuroscience investigation, data analysis, presentation and publication.
Areas of Specialization
Faculty members’ interests are wide-ranging. Subspecialties advanced clinically and academically are highlighted by their status as divisions within the department. These include cerebrovascular, epilepsy, neuro-oncology, neurotrauma, pediatric neurosurgery, skull base, spine and neurofunctional. Other areas of resident training include neurology, neuropathology, neuroradiology and radiosurgery.
Residents advance in activity and responsibility at the conclusion of annual performance reviews.
The University of Cincinnati and Mayfield Clinic's program has full approval of the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education and the American Board of Neurological Surgery for the education of three residents per year.
