    • Jan 26, 2017

    The Congress of Neurological Surgeons currently has 1,822 resident members, accounting for 20 percent of the total membership. This includes 1,623 North American residents, fellows, and 199 International Vista resident members. The CNS is committed to providing quality educational and leadership opportunities for residents. Recent initiatives include the development of:

    The CNS Leadership Fellow Program – 36 residents in ACGME approved residencies were selected to participate in seven different CNS committees for a two-year term. Our inaugural class recently concluded their term and we will continue to develop this program to optimize the opportunity for leadership development.

    The Resident Roadmap – This new, CNS online career resource provides a guide for residents to navigate through residency including board study, fellowship consideration, and job application.

    Resident Liaison Program – Each ACGME approved resident program has selected a resident liaison who receives targeted residentfocused information and serve as a communication liaison between the CNS and their program.

    “Being a Leadership Fellow and working with the Resident
    Committee has been great. Not only have I been able to work on
    a couple of different projects, I’ve made invaluable connections. I
    plan to stay involved with different committees on the CNS. I’d like
    to continue to refine my leadership skills and bring my knowledge
    to whatever hospital I end up at in the future to help improve the
    workings of the department.”

    –Jonathan Pace, MD, Leadership Fellow, Resident Committee
