Since the 1930's, over 2,000 neurologists, neurosurgeons and neuroscientists have received their specialty training at McGill.
McGill's Department of Neurology and Neurosurgery serves as a rigorous training ground in the clinical and scientific aspects of brain disorders and is recognized worldwide for the surgical treatment of epilepsy, brain tumors, and neuromuscular, neurogenetic, cerebrovascular, and spinal problems.
The program offers a variety of experience in basic neurosciences as applied to neurosurgery, with strengths in brain imaging, neural regeneration, molecular neurobiology, neuro-oncology, and cerebral vascular research.
The McGill residency program in neurosurgery involves a wide range of adult and pediatric clinical instruction at the Montreal Neurological Institute, Montreal General Hospital, Montreal Children's Hospital, and the Sir M.B. Davis - Jewish General Hospital. Residents rotate to each hospital in the course of their training.
Residency Programs have the specific goals of training both clinical neurologists and neurosurgeons and academic clinician-scientists. They are designed to meet requirements in adult neurology, pediatric neurology, and neurosurgery of the Collège des Médecins du Québec and the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.
