On behalf of the faculty and staff of the Department of Neurosurgery at the University of Florida and Shands/UF Hospital – Welcome!
Our department continues its long-standing legacy and unwavering pursuit of its three-part mission:
- Dedication to providing technically superb, compassionate, and timely medical care to our patients.
- Commitment to the education of resident physicians, and to the continuing medical education for practicing physicians in the art and science of neurosurgery.
- Exploring and developing through clinical and basic research at the UF McKnight Brain Institute new and better treatments for neurosurgical disorders.
If you are a medical student or prospective resident, we invite you to explore our Residency page that gives details regarding medical student externships, a residency overview, and other specifics concerning our educational programs.
We look forward to the opportunity to serve your patient care, referral, or educational needs.
