Subspeciality Training in Neurosurgery
- 116 Downloads
Evolution for neurosurgeons is not at a standstill. The environment, competition from neighbouring fields, advances in biology and changes in the level of information available to our patients, the “market” will favour and demand subspeciali-sation. Subspecialists are characterized by recognized records of excellence. The best suited to impart knowledge to a clinical fellow is the senior subspecialist who is working within a group of other complementary subspecialists. To develop subspecialty expertise takes a minimum of one, preferably two years of training. Neurosurgery will retain and regain its strength as a discipline by diversification, not by clinging to monolithic uniformity.
