The Neurosurgical Residency Program at Yale-New Haven Hospital is a seven-year program under the direction of the Department of Neurosurgery. Dr. Dennis Spencer is the department chair, and Dr. Charles Duncan is program director for the residency.
The Neurosurgical Residency Program gives residents a broad neurosurgical background. It exposes them to subspecialty neurosurgery and gives them a chance to engage in basic and clinical research.
Appointments to the program are for one year with advancement based on performance. Residents are evaluated continuously by the faculty and senior residents in accordance with the General Competencies. The department expects residents to contribute to their own education through active interaction with faculty. Faculty evaluations are based on residents’ performance in seminars, on the wards, in the OR, in clinics and in the laboratory.
