Here at the University of Maryland Department of Neurosurgery, resident training is enriched through three tenets of success that guide this program.

  • Patient Care: Residents learn early to deliver the highest level of medical and neurosurgical care to our patients, many from our sickest and most vulnerable populations. Our residents treat Baltimore and beyond.
  • Academic Excellence: Resident-led research across all realms of neurosurgery and clinical neuroscience is fostered and supported through faculty mentorship and collaboration.
  • Training the Future: Residents educate their patients and peers, lead didactic conferences, guide patient care discussions, and collaborate with faculty to make emergent and elective clinical decisions. Our graduates leave ready to lead their teams.

Diversity, Equity, Inclusion

Diversity fuels excellence and innovation. Different, multifaceted skill sets, perspectives, and experiences enhance our ability to address complex neurosurgical problems, improve team performance and educate the next generation.


Actively seek different and uniquely suited perspectives and team members to empower the work of the department through diversity, equity and inclusion.
