Education and Training

Neurosurgery Residency

The combined Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) and BMC Neurosurgical Residency Program provides residents with a unique opportunity to train at three of the busiest medical centers in New England, all of which treat patients with some of the most complex neurologic conditions. During their seven years of training, residents spend equal amounts of time at BIDMC and BMC, six months at Boston Children’s Hospital, and one year conducting research.

Pre-residency fellows are integral members of the neurosurgical neurocritical care teams, working alongside our neurosurgeons, intensive care neurologists, and residents. Duties include managing floor and ICU patients, night call, and assisting in the operating room and outpatient clinic, along with attending weekly didactic sessions.
