Progressive Surgical Responsibility and Experience

Residents at all levels will be involved with the preoperative care, intraoperative care, and postoperative care of all patients on the neurosurgical service.  Preoperative decisions both in the clinic and in the hospital setting will be made by residents assigned to each particular patient.  Residents will be expected to commit to a plan of treatment (either operative treatment or non-operative treatment)  and postoperative care before the patient undergoes treatment.  This plan is discussed with the patient’s attending neurosurgeon/faculty member and revisions of the plan will be made as appropriate before treatment is actually started.  When appropriate, the resident will be expected to review and/or demonstrate knowledge of the literature concerning each case and be able to discuss this with the faculty member before surgery.  Residents will not be allowed to take an active part in any neurosurgical operation until he/she can demonstrate a knowledge of anatomy and expected surgical pathology anticipated for each case.  As the resident progresses through the residency program, the resident will be expected to deal with more complex cases and neurosurgical situations as they arise.
