Residency Program


Resident Class of 2017-18

The Department of Neurosurgery and Brain Repair at the University of South Florida sponsors a fully ACGME accredited residency training program in neurological surgery. Our program began in 1987 under the auspices of the founding chairman Dr. David W. Cahill. Dr. Cahill set the precedence to the quality resident education and patient care for which this program provides. We accept two residents annually, for a total of fourteen residents, whose educational curriculum involves rotations through our five affiliated sites as part of their training.

All resident rotations are designed with a specific educational component appropriate for the resident training level. Resident's clinical and operative responsibilities increase as the resident demonstrates his/her level of competence. Given the complexity of neurological surgery, it is the ultimate goal of this program to produce highly skilled, competent and productive neurosurgeons dedicated to the continued advancements in neurological surgery with the focus on quality patient care and medical outcomes.

Thank you for expressing an interest in what we believe is an excellent, rapidly growing program dedicated to the training and maturation of neurosurgeons that are both a credit to our program as well as the profession at large.
