Residency Program

At the University of Kansas,  our goal is to not only be one of the finest training programs in the Midwest, but to be one of the finest programs in the country.  We believe that as a KU neurosurgery resident, you will be superbly trained in the wide range of neurosurgical procedures, and develop the clinical skills and judgment that are absolutely necessary to be a successful neurosurgeon. 

Historically, the Department of Neurosurgery at the University of Kansas was a six-year training program offering one residency position per year, and a complement of six Neurosurgery Residents.  

On July 1, 2012 the training program’s length changed to seven years with a complement of seven residents.  Beginning July 1, 2013, the Residency Review Committee for Neurosurgery approved the program for a complement of 11 residents.  

Residents starting July 1, 2012 and thereafter will follow the seven-year curriculum.  The program includes the integrated PGY-1 year.

The residency position is filled through ERAS and NRMP.

Each year we accept ERAS applications from September through November 15th.
