Academic Tracks

Academic Tracks

The Emory University Neurosurgery Residency Training Program offers comprehensive, diverse and intense training in clinical neurosurgery and related disciplines, while providing research training and opportunities for academic development and scholarship.  In addition to general requirements, the program recognizes the interest of trainees who wish to develop subspecialty clinical and academic/research training.  These subspecialty areas include: Cerebrovascular, Functional, Neuro-Critical Care, Neuro-Oncology and Spine.

This initiative to provide defined curricula and training opportunities in subspecialty areas was conceptualized by the Residency Program Director and created by the faculty in response to residency training trends, as well as needs of specialty and workforce opportunities.  The Academic/Development/Research Tracks are unique in nature, but follow a similar template of coursework, scientific meetings, seminars/webinars, laboratory training, focused clinical exposure, grant support and mentorship.
