Neurosurgery Residency Program


From The Chairman

On behalf of the faculty and staff of the Department of Neurosurgery at the University of Louisville, I welcome you to the Neurological Surgery Residency Program.

The path from education as a physician to training as a neurosurgeon is challenging -- and ultimately one of the most rewarding opportunities that you can choose to pursue.

At the University of Louisville, we are committed to excellence in diagnosing and treating neurological disorders and discovering new treatments in a caring, patient-centered environment. The Neurological Surgery Residency Program at UofL provides comprehensive neurological surgery training that combines:

  • An outstanding faculty of practicing neurosurgeons and distinguished neuroscience researchers
  • State-of-the-art diagnostic and therapeutic technologies for brain and spine surgery with an emphasis on minimally invasive approaches
  • Leading edge research facilities
  • A renowned regional Level 1 trauma center with a high volume and variety of patients

I look forward to working with you throughout your neurosurgical training.
