About This Program
The University of Utah Neurosurgery residency program is designed to create talented surgeons, neurosurgeon-scientists, and leaders. The program prepares individuals to become fully competent and compassionate neurosurgeons. Residents are exposed to all aspects of neurosurgery and the rotation schedule is designed to facilitate a stepwise accrual of knowledge and expertise. Residents are given graduated levels of responsibility toward achieving competency and finally mastery of the technical aspects of neurosurgery to prepare them for future leadership roles in neurosurgery. Individuals completing this program will be well prepared to practice neurosurgery, possessing a solid foundation of basic and clinical knowledge and technical skills required by this specialty. The residents are highly valued in our program, and we have been fortunate to attract and select individuals who have previously demonstrated their intelligence, thirst for knowledge and commitment to neurosurgery.
