Neurosurgery Residency

The residency training program at UTHSC is a seven-year training program with two residents per year. Our program participates in the National Residency Matching Program. As of July 1, 2009, all seven years are completed in the Neurosurgery Department.

Clinical training takes place at several affiliated institutions: Methodist University Hospital (MUH), Le Bonheur Children's Hospital, Regional One Health (formerly the MED), Baptist Memorial Hospital - Memphis, and the Veterans Administration Medical Center (VAMC).

Our residents are afforded the opportunity to learn all aspects of general neurosurgery in our high-volume teaching hospitals, as well as most subspecialty areas of neurosurgery. They enjoy a very high early success rate on the American Board of Neurological Surgery written board examination while still in training. A variety of research opportunities are also available to our residents on campus.
