Residency Program

About the Neurosurgery Residency Program at SUNY Upstate Medical University

The Neurosurgery Residency program at Upstate Medical University is a 7-year program of progressive education and responsibility. The goal of the program is to develop the highest possible level of clinical expertise and to thoroughly prepare residents for the challenge of neurosurgical practice.

A hallmark of Upstate Medical’s program is its emphasis on research. Each resident devotes two full years to research built to gain a comprehensive understanding of the human nervous system. We believe this provides a distinct advantage in both academic careers and private practice.

The program has a total complement of 10-12 residents and admits 1-2 new residents each year.
