Residency Information: Our Standards and Requirements

Applications for NYU’s Neurosurgery Residency Training Program are processed through the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP) and the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). A central application process has allowed for a streamlined approach to securing a residency position.

Please note that written or e-mailed applications will not be considered. More information about ERAS may be obtained by visiting the AAMC website.

All requested documents will be reviewed by the Department of Neurosurgery House Staff Selection Committee, and selected candidates will be invited for an interviews and tour of our medical campus. Due to the large number of applications received each year via ERAS, not all qualified candidates can be accommodated with interviews and tours. We ask for your understanding in this regard. Interviews generally take place in the latter part of the year, from November through January.

Appointments to the neurosurgery residency program are made through the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP) and commence before July 1 of each academic year.
