    Name of the WFNS Training Centre:

    New York University Post-Graduate Training Program


    About the Training Center:

    As one of the nation’s leading academic neurosurgery programs, the New York University Medical Center offers a depth and breadth of surgical experience that few institutions can match. With over 20 full-time clinical and research faculty members, our department serves as a national and international referral center. One of our hallmarks is that other physicians routinely refer their most complex surgical cases to our neurosurgeons, knowing that there’s no case we can’t handle. At the same time, our surgeons’ clinical skills are complemented by their deep commitment to compassionate patient care, and by a team of nurse practitioners, physician assistants and support staff who are unsurpassed in their training, expertise and empathy. At NYU Langone Neurosurgery, we are guided by a simple philosophy: the patient always comes first.
