A Message from the Program Director and Section Chief of Neurological Surgery at Ascension Providence Hospital.
Welcome to Ascension Providence Hospital and thank you for expressing an interest in our neurosurgery residency program. It is a great honor to offer a comprehensive residency program with world-class facilities to train future neurosurgeons. Our program achieved ACGME accreditation March 31, 2017. We have relinquished our AOA accreditation as a result of this achievement.
In an effort to increase the quality of neurosurgery training for the residents, Ascension Providence Hospitals; the Children's Hospital of Michigan, Detroit Receiving Hospital and Harper Hospital (of the Detroit Medical Center) jointly administer this neurological surgery residency program with Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine. The participation of these institutions facilitates a substantial number, variety, and complexity of patients, pathology and research opportunities.
We are always seeking bright, ambitious and dedicated men and women willing to commit to the rigorous training in the field of neurosurgery. Our residents have the opportunity to be exposed to well over 4,000 neurosurgical cases each year in all subspecialties of neurosurgery. The requirements of our program are demanding and expectations remain high for all resident neurosurgeons; however, the rewards are plentiful and all graduates have entered their profession as outstanding leaders and excellent clinicians in the field of neurosurgery.
Within this website you will find detailed information about our participating hospitals, clinical faculty, curriculum, research program and more. We invite you to learn more about the success of our osteopathic neurosurgery residency and look forward to any and all interactions we may have in the future.
