NYC Softball Tournament
This year, we were honored with the opportunity to participate for the first time at the Annual Charity Neurosurgery Residency Conference. While we weren’t the champions, we had a great time interacting with other neurosurgery residency programs from across the country. And all for a great cause!
Annual Neuroscience Bowl
Each November, the faculty, fellows and residents of Neurosurgery, Neurology and Neurocritical Care come together for the annual Neuroscience Bowl. This is a jeopardy style competition of knowledge mastery, emceed by Dr. Kiwon Lee (Director, Neuro ICU). The Winners are:
2014 – Neurocritical Care
2015 – Neurosurgery
2016 – Neurocritical Care
Other Social Events:
- Christmas Party
- Resident End-of-Year Party
- Post ABNS Exam Party
- Random fun activities as thought up by the residents
Each year, two of our residents accompany our Pediatric Neurosurgery group to Haiti, to operate on children in need. Throughout the year there are numerous events that we participate in to promote our volunteer effort. Whether it is a local charity run or a trip to a 3rd world country to provide medical care, our residents are actively involved in changing the lives of others!
