About This Program
The Department of Neurosurgery at Rush University Medical Center is dedicated to excellence in neurosurgical education. We offer a comprehensive educational curriculum, abundant operative experience, research and academic opportunities which together provide a firm foundation for future success. Focused elective and research blocks provide our residents with the time and mentorship to develop subspecialty academic interests and pursue innovation through research throughout their career. We have the largest surgical volume in the eight-county region for the sixth straight year. This has been largely fueled by additional dedicated academic faculty and the growth of programs in vascular neurosurgery, spine surgery and brain tumor surgery. Although we are pleased by the growth in volume, our primary focus will always remain on quality. University Health Consortium (UHC) data on outcomes has routinely placed some of our programs among the top performers in outcome in the nation. Our goal at Rush is to train tomorrow’s leaders in neurosurgery.
