Off-Site Rotations

Opportunity for ‘community’ neurosurgery experience will be provided through rotations at Lion’s Gate and Victoria General Hospitals. These residents will be assigned to mid and senior level residents who will be the sole resident on service. These rotations are for residents to be involved in all aspects of patient care, from diagnosis to treatment, and to experience more independent management of patients under direct supervision of staff neurosurgeons in a busy clinical setting.

Appropriate on-call with staff supervision (PAR-guidelines) and attendance at ambulatory clinics are expected. All staff at these sites has UBC appointments. These rotations count towards the overall number of resident’s clinical neurosurgical in-training months/requirements.
