Schedule of Teaching Rounds
The structure of weekly teaching rounds are at the discretion of the individual attending neurosurgical faculty member. The full-time faculty rotate the responsibility for coverage of the residents for general neurosurgery and the Emergency Department on a weekly basis. Neurovascular and Pediatrics have separate attending schedules. One of the high points of the week are teaching rounds with Dr. Spencer, Chair of the Department, on Wednesday mornings following the other conferences. During these round both students and residents present cases where the emphasis is on the pathophysiology of a particular condition and decision making process in diagnosis and therapy.
