New resident lounge 1 crop

The Department of Neurosurgery is pleased to announce the completion of its new resident lounge located on the seventh floor of Jefferson Tower.

Construction began in April and was completed on June 4, 2021. The lounge is outfitted with comfortable seating, desk space and more. Computers, monitors and phones are ordered and will be installed soon.

The goal is to provide residents a space to meet, collaborate, and more importantly serve as a "safe place" where residents can decompress from, at times, the rigorous training they undergo during neurosurgery residency.

"Our residents and their well-being are a top priority of the department. I look forward to seeing the benefits this new lounge will provide to our hard-working trainees," said James Garber Galbraith Endowed Chair of Neurosurgery James Markert, M.D., MPH.

“We are always looking for ways to support our residents and we greatly appreciate their dedication to the program,” said Curtis Rozzelle, M.D., director of the Neurosurgery Residency Program. “Wellness plays a huge role in developing successful neurosurgeons and future leaders in our field .”
