Neurosurgical Residency Program


Ronnie L. Alterman, MD of BIDMC reviewing a brain scanFollowing the approval by the Residency Review Committee of the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) in April 2016, the BIDMC Department of Surgery now offers a general Neurosurgical Residency Program. The seven-year residency is a combined program with Boston Medical Center (BMC).

The combined BIDMC/BMC Neurosurgical Residency Program will provide residents with a unique opportunity to train at three of the busiest medical centers in New England, all of which treat patients with some of the most complex neurologic conditions.

During their seven years of training, residents will spend equal amounts of time at BIDMC and BMC, six months at Boston Children’s Hospital, and one year conducting research.

Ultimately, the program will have a total of seven residents, but will begin with one resident each year, starting in July 2016.

Due to COVID-19 related restrictions, visiting medical student clerkships have been suspended by Harvard Medical School until February 2021. The BIDMC division of neurosurgery is offering a virtual neurosurgery sub-I to medical students pursuing neurosurgery. Please apply here if you are interested.
