Residency Curriculum Areas


The practice of neurosurgery has become too complex for neurosurgeons to be experts in all facets of neurosurgical practice. NYU Langone’s Department of Neurosurgery is therefore organized into the subspecialty areas outlined below. Most of our faculty members confine their practice to one of these specific areas, enabling them to obtain a depth of clinical experience and expertise that results in superior patient care.

Our residency program is designed to give residents exposure to the faculty in each one of these subspecialty areas-thereby providing a comprehensive neurosurgical training experience, while also helping our residents gain an understanding of which subspecialty area they would like to pursue.
