Neurosurgery Pre Residency fellow position
Neurosurgery Pre-Residency fellowship position

Boston University School of Medicine
Department of Neurosurgery
Neurosurgery Fellowship
The Department of Neurosurgery at Boston University is seeking physicians for pre-residency, post-graduate fellowship positions in neurosurgery. Pre-residency fellows work alongside 8 neurosurgeons, 6 neuro intensive care neurologists, and neurosurgical and neurology residents at Boston Medical Center (Boston MA) and nearby St. Elizabeth’s Medical Center (Brighton MA).  The program provides broad clinical exposure in the neurosciences.  Pre-residency fellows are integral members of the neurosurgical team whose duties and responsibilities are commensurate with neurosurgery residency programs, include managing floor and ICU patients, night call, as well as assisting in the operating room and outpatient clinic. In addition to rotations on the neurosurgical services at Boston Medical Center and St. Elizabeth’s Medical Center, there is a significant amount of time spent on the inpatient neurocritical care service at Boston Medical Center, so those interested in neurology or neurocritical care can take advantage of this opportunity.  Fellows also participate in weekly didactic sessions including neurosurgical core conferences, tumor board, neuroscience grand rounds, and critical care problem case conference.  Opportunities exist for clinical or basic research both within the institution and the fertile Boston academic environment. Accepted candidates must commit to a minimum of 2 years in the program. Candidates should be eligible for a Massachusetts limited license.
