Throughout their 36 months of formal neurosurgical training, residents attend clinics, receiving increased responsibility over time. Rotations include a three-month rotation in neuroradiology, a three-month rotation in neuropathology, and a one-month rotation in neuroanaesthesia. Six staff surgeons provide expertise in the areas of complex spinal surgery, skull base surgery (including transsphenoidal surgery), epilepsy surgery, and functional neurosurgery.
Residents are encouraged to undertake research projects throughout their training, and there is an optional research year within the training. Those residents who are interested in an academic career are advised to take an advanced degree.
By the completion of residency, residents will be proficient in the surgical and non-surgical management of all types of neurosurgical illnesses in adults and children.
The living costs include the total expenses per month, covering accommodation, public transportation, utilities (electricity, internet), books and groceries.
