AOA Neurosurgery Residency Programs offer a variety of mentoring programs. Seasoned Neurosurgeons are available for conversation by contacting the AOA and asking to be enrolled into the "Mentorship" program. If you are looking for a stronger opportunity, if you want to see if this commitment is right for you, AOA Neurosurgery Residency Programs will accept students and interns on the Neurosurgery service. We will accommodate different time schedules. Rotations and visits can be arranged by contacting the AOA Neurosurgery Residency Programs directly at the numbers listed below. The time is now.


Do you have what it takes?

Are you looking to be a leader?

Are you looking for a demanding energetic life?

Is this lifestyle and its rewards for you?



Osteopathic medical students should visit the residency program to which they wish to apply. The application for first year neurosurgical residency spots should be completed through ERAS. The students must also register for the National Match which will fit together students and programs. If you are applying for a second year position please contact the neurosurgical program directly. A sample Neurosurgery PGY-2 application can be found by clicking here.
