The Bristol, United Kingdom International rotation has been a highlight of our resident’s experience during their time at UTHSC.  The UTHSC Department of Neurosurgery has a longstanding relationship with the North Bristol Trust (NBT) neurosurgical unit dating back several decades.

 This 6-month immersive rotation gives the resident additional focused subspecialty training in their area of interest.  In addition to this, it gives them the opportunity to grow and learn working within the NHS health system.  The subspecialty areas covered in this elective include functional, trauma, pediatrics, spine, skull base, and cerebrovascular neurosurgery.  This optional rotation typically is offered during the PGY-5 or PGY-6 training years.  Every resident from our program that has participated in this opportunity states at graduation that it was one of the most valuable experiences during their time in training.
