Investing in Tomorrow’s Neurosurgeons Today
Today, you can invest in the education and training of tomorrow’s neurosurgeons by supporting the UCI Department of Neurological Surgery Resident’s Skull Based Laboratory Project.
Join with us as we raise funds to create two dedicated Resident’s Stations in our Skull Based Laboratory at UCI Medical. These lab stations will give our residents the education and training opportunities they need to become the future leaders in the field of neurological surgery.
At the UCI Neurological Surgery Residency Program, we are committed to building a strong foundation to train neurosurgeons and inspire them to discover the challenge and excitement of treating complex neurosurgical conditions and to nurture innovation and research. Our Neurological Surgery Residents learn through hands-on education, extensive didactic program of core lectures, seminars and neurosurgery journal clubs, and conferences and grand rounds. The UCI Neurological Surgery Residency program provides a safe and compassionate educational environment to train the residents in becoming independent, competent, empathic, and caring neurosurgeons. The UCI Neurological Surgery Residency Program is highly competitive and sought-after program. The residency program, which is fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME), was officially launched on July 1, 2008.
The Resident’s Stations in the Skull Based Laboratory funded from program alumni and the community will provide two dedicated microscope stations for our residents, allowing them the opportunity to practice microsurgical skills that will improve surgical dexterity, surgical efficiency, and safety protocols needed when performing microdissection during skull-base and vascular surgery. Our teaching lab gives our residents hands on experience required to become expert in neurosurgery skills.
The funds will be used to purchase:
- 2 Operative microscopes
- 2 Video training attachment
- 2 sets Micro-instruments
Our goal is to raise $10,000 to fund both dedicated stations.
Please join with us today – Giving Day – to make this award a reality. Your gift in any amount is greatly appreciated. Donate to the UCI Department of Neurological Surgery Residency Program for a brilliant future.
