Post Residency Subspecialty Training in Neurosurgery — The Impact of Subspecialty Training on Organized Neurosurgery and Resident Training — Benefits, Responsibilities and Liabilities
- 114 Downloads
Currently in the United States there are 113 designated neurosurgical subspecialty fellowships which are directly affiliated with accredited residency training programs (Table 1). Although these fellowships are designated as “available”, a number of them are currently inactive. Also, there may exist some “fellowships” which are unaffiliated with residency programs, but there is no reliable information regarding their number or location and such programs are probably insignificant in their potential impact to organized neurosurgery and to resident training.
