Greetings from the Chairman

OyesikuThank you for your interest in the residency program at Emory University's Department of Neurosurgery, an ACGME accredited program with continued full five-year accreditation until our next site visit in January 2013. Our School of Medicine has a long-standing reputation as one of the nation's finest teaching and research institutions.

In the Neurosurgery Residency Program, our residents learn from physicians of international prestige, encountering a multitude of neurosurgery subspecialty areas, including neuro-oncology, pituitary, spine and instrumentation, cerebrovascular, stereotactic, functional and epilepsy, peripheral nerve and pediatrics.

An extraordinary asset of this training program is the diversity of our affiliated institutions and the wealth of clinical experience available. During training, the Emory Neurosurgical Resident has ample opportunity to become adept at the diagnosis and treatment of patients, as well as to develop technical proficiency in the most difficult neurosurgical techniques. Our program offers unique clinical and laboratory experience in several fields, including research opportunities in cerebral blood flow and metabolism, stroke, neural transplantation, central nervous system trauma, epilepsy, neuro-endocrinology, neuro-oncology, molecular biology and microsurgical techniques.

In our residency program at Emory, we strive to produce well-rounded individuals who will become academic leaders in the field of Neurosurgery. We invite you to join us.
