Residency Program

The George Washington University department of Neurosurgery is committed to providing the optimal Training, Educational, and Research experience for each resident entering this program.

The first resident in Neurosurgery at George Washington University was Jonathan O. Williams in 1940. 

The current Neurosurgery training program at GW is a 7-year program following internship. The clinical neurosurgical services are centered at George Washington University Hospital, Inova Fairfax Hospital (IFX), The National Institutes of Health (NIH), and The Children’s National Health System. Standing electives exist in Neurology, Neuropathology, Neuroradiology, and in the Ammerman Microsurgical Laboratory. Other electives to expand or diversify training are also encouraged.

The resident may elect to do a fellowship year at the NIH in a rotation outside of the 5 year training program commitment.
