Here at Columbia the neurosurgical residents, already full fledged MDs, play two very important roles; they are both students and teachers. They are learning and refining their neurosurgical practice with the help of the experienced neurosurgeons and neuro-radiologists in the department. As they progress through their seven years of residency, they in turn help newer residents as well as medical students with an interest in neurosurgery.
“The goal of this basic surgical skills session,” says Dr. Yun “is to give the students the best chance to shine during their neurosurgery sub-internships and to foster a culture of teaching that they can continue as future residents. We reviewed the proper technique for the manipulation and suturing of dura and galea for students who are about to begin their 4th year neurosurgery sub-internships in a few months. We also had a review session for general neurosurgery knowledge.“
