Dating a neurosurgery resident
Another year is spent performing either basic science research or clinical and outcomes based research based on individual preferences and career goals.Our two training sites, SSM Health Saint Louis University Hospital and SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children's Hospital, together provide over 1,100 admissions and 800 operations per year on the neurosurgery service.Residents are required to attend clinics on a weekly basis while on service.Patients seen in the clinic fall into one of the following broad categories: specialty-specific preoperative consultations or operative evaluations, postoperative follow-ups, or follow-ups from on-call inpatient consultations (e.g., trauma patients).Attending call schedules are separated into cranial neurosurgical call and neurovascular call at SSM Health Saint Louis University Hospital (SLUH) and SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children's Hospital (CGCH), and adult spine call at SLUH.Call schedules are provided on a monthly basis and include information including resident call, attending call, and resident days off/vacations. The neurosurgical service at Saint Louis University is heavily dependent upon computer technology.Currently, the PGY2-PGY5 cover in-house call for both SSM Health Saint Louis University Hospital and SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital.A senior (PGY6/7) provides at home backup call coverage at all times.
A database dating back to 2000 of nearly 10,000 patients is maintained on an internal server.The Department of Neurosurgery at the University of Kansas School of Medicine has a rich history, dating back 90 years, when Frank Randall Teachenor joins the KU neurosurgery faculty, after establishing the first practice of Neurosurgery west of the Mississippi River.We continue to train the finest young men and women in the practice of neurosurgery.Neurosurgical bedside procedures are performed by the resident on-call or the senior backup resident as necessary.
The residency program has a robust schedule of didactic conferences.
In-house call is covered by junior residents nightly with the chief resident or subspecialty chief resident as senior level backup. Both of the main hospitals use EPIC for electronic health records throughout the system in both the inpatient and outpatient environment.
