We invest heavily in creating a multi-faceted future of our specialty through our residency and medical student educational programs. Our alumni and current residents are diverse in training background, gender, ethnicity, and areas of neurosurgical subspecialty interest.

Our Department's leadership team, faculty, residents, and staff are committed to the shared goals of larger UC San Diego initiatives such as the Health Sciences Gender Equity Committee and the Anti-Racism Coalition.
