The neurosurgical training program at the Barrow Neurological Institute at St. Joseph’s Hospital is an ACGME accredited 7-year training program. It is our goal to develop bright and enthusiastic residents into thoroughly trained, competent, research and clinically-adept physicians. We focus strongly on producing mastery of surgical technique as well as clinical indication for neurosurgical procedures. Furthermore, research into the basic and clinical decision making and consequences form a critical aspect of our training program. We believe that resident autonomy and responsibility are essential to development of successful surgeons – and are the hallmarks of our training program.
