Academics / Courses Conducted

The department offers MCh course in neurosurgery. The selection for the course is based on a competitive exam held once a year. The department has an intake of 10 students every year, six of whom are selected following completion of MS in General surgery. The course lasts 3 years for these candidates. Four candidates are selected following MBBS for a 5 year course. During the course of the residency program, candidates are trained to have sound theoretical knowledge of neurosurgery. An active surgical training program ensures that candidates pass out of the institute as full-fledged neurosurgeons ready to practice in their chosen subspecialty areas. An option of 1 year of senior residency exists for students completing the MCh course. Students are trained to operate on all varieties of emergency neurosurgical procedures and common elective procedures on the brain and spinal cord. Training is imparted in handling of surgical microscopes, drills, micro-instruments during the course. Candidates are encouraged to pursue advanced training following the MCh course.
