HIGHLIGHTS

The University of Ottawa Division of Neurosurgery is a fully-accredited Royal College training program. The program encourages residents to pursue research opportunities and supports their residents in pursuing outside opportunities such as Masters or PhD programs and are supported to present their research at national conferences. Resident input is valued very highly and bi-monthly resident meetings are scheduled to ensure training is up to par. The Division of Neurosurgery has a medium-sized faculty with a large variety of specializations including spine surgery, cerebrovascular surgery, pediatric neurosurgery, skull-base surgery, interventional neuroradiological neurosurgery, and peripheral nerve.


Financial support for specialized courses and meetings is available to all residents throughout residency as all residents are encouraged to actively participate in clinical and basic science research on an annual basis during training. Attendance at the R.U.N.N. (Woods Hole, MA) basic neuroscience review course is also offered to all residents intending to pursue additional training in basic science or clinical research during residency. Residents are encouraged to present their academic research annually both at the University of Ottawa Annual Collins Research Day and at national and international neurosurgical meetings with funding for travel/registration supported by the Residency Program.


GENERAL INFORMATION

All candidates must meet the Ontario criteria of eligibility.


On-site electives are not a requirement however it is preferred. We encourage candidates to have completed a sufficiently broad of electives with at least one elective in Neurosurgery. Elective experiences will be reviewed however we are sensitive to the lack of elective opportunities caused by the current pandemic situation. This will be taken into consideration and leniency for this criteria will be exerted.
