Welcome New Residents

Welcoming a new class of residents each year is a highlight for faculty in the Department of Neurological Surgery. Our faculty’s ultimate goal is to train future world class neurosurgeons who are well-equipped for careers in either academic or non-academic settings.

Our residents train at leading medical facilities in Indianapolis: IU Health Methodist, Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health, Eskenazi Health and Roudebush VA Medical Center. These varied hospital settings allow residents to experience a diverse patient population that includes the underserved and a case mix that exceeds the case minimums required by the Neurological Surgery Residency Review Committee. We have also developed an enfolded fellowship program in the seventh year of residency that allows for sub-specialization without extending training for all disciplines except pediatric neurosurgery.

Our ACGME-accredited program was established in 1949 and graduates have enjoyed great success. Many have distinguished themselves as nationally and internationally recognized leaders of the specialty. You will be in great company.

We look forward to meeting you.
