The Neurosurgery residency program is enhanced by a full range of modern diagnostic equipment and Canada's first gamma knife unit, as well as a close link with the Section of Neurology and a strong core of neuroscience teaching and research at the University and Winnipeg's two major teaching hospitals.


ll neurosurgical specialties are represented within the section. These pages detail the nature of specialization within each subsection, along with an overview of the medical conditions treated.The General Hospital and Children’s Hospital of the Winnipeg Health Sciences Centre are the two sites associated with the University of Manitoba which offer training in neurosurgery.

Residents are exposed to the full range of neurosurgical subspecialties, including epilepsy, neuro-oncology, and vascular, spinal, functional, and paediatric neurosurgery. In addition to clinical neurosurgery, residents rotate through neurology, neuroradiology, and neuropathology, as well as other surgical and medical subspecialties.

Throughout their six years in training, residents are given increasing responsibility, until they oversee the functioning of the neurosurgery unit during their final chief resident year.

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.
