Education and research

Neurosurgical training programme

Our  Neurosurgery department is part of the North Thames Neurosurgery rotation program. We are dedicated in training neurosurgical registrars and supporting them through their journey to become a fully qualified neurosurgeon. The registrars rotating to our unit are exposed to a variety of neurosurgical pathologies and benefit from morning handover meeting teaching and other teaching opportunities.
