Training + Education

All of our doctors are also faculty members at the prestigious Tufts University School of Medicine. Our neurosurgery residency program provides outstanding clinical training and surgical experience with a focus on compassionate, personalized care. Residents become familiar with the latest procedures, including minimally invasive surgical techniques. Our department is also one of six regional centers to host the annual Society of Neurological Surgeons Fundamental Skills Course, a required "boot camp" for all incoming neurosurgery residents in the United States. Every year, we host approximately 30 interns from 19 neurosurgical residency programs for two days of lectures and hands-on sessions.
