Neurological Surgery Residency
The Spectrum Health/Michigan State University Neurological Surgery Residency is a seven year program, accepting one resident annually. Residents undertake their adult neurosurgical training at Spectrum Health Butterworth and Spectrum Health Blodgett hospitals and their pediatric neurosurgical training at Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital, and are exposed to several interdisciplinary clinical programs. A large array of technical assets in both diagnostic and therapeutic domains coupled with the clinical expertise of specialty-focused staff serve to supplement the training experience in order to prepare the trainee for future practice.
The educational environment at Spectrum Health provides sufficient exposure in all ACGME-required neurosurgery domains, including pediatrics. The program will provide for a means by which high caliber graduates may be recruited within the department to perpetuate a strong academic standard and clinical performance.
Research opportunities exist within the system and through collaborations established with Michigan State University (department of translational science and molecular medicine), the Van Andel Research Institute and Grand Valley State University (departments of engineering and mathematics).
