The Western University neurosurgery program’s strength is in training highly competent, technically skilled neurosurgeons. This is accomplished through our high case volume and independence-oriented training. Particular clinical strengths of the program include vascular and endovascular therapy as well as functional, stereotactic and epilepsy surgery.
Other highlights include:
- Among the top neurosurgical programs in Canada and is the only program in Canada with a 100% success rate of its trainees trained by neurosurgery giants in Canada
- CBME program as of July 1st 2019 (Surgical Foundations in July 2018)
- Resident learning is important to faculty, residents, and all staff (academic half day teaching, Grand Rounds, clinical learning, Neurosurgery Rookie Camp hosts in July 2019 and in July 2021)
- Residents are encouraged to pursue educational and research opportunities outside of their training, e.g. Master’s and/or PhD (up to two years away)
