Neurosurgery faculty supervise residents daily and meet with them as a group weekly. Every six months, the Program Director, Dr. Haring Nauta, meets with them one-on-one to review their progress.
An attending neurosurgeon is available at all times, if needed, to provide appropriate patient care and supervision. At University Hospital 6:00 am rounds is supervised by the faculty attending on call. Furthermore, residents may ask any attending to consult with them.
Residents are assigned a faculty mentor. Twice a year, residents and mentors meet to discuss the residents’ goals, progress, and any problems that arise.
