Education and training

Cohen Children's invests in the next generation of pediatric neurosurgeons by offering comprehensive educational and training opportunities. Two residents a year are accepted into the residency program in neurosurgery at Donald and Barbara Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra/Northwell, and they spend at least six months of their rotation at Cohen Children’s Medical Center.

Since they are able to gain this intense pediatric experience, they are fully prepared to assist in decision-making and management when they are called to evaluate pediatric issues at other facilities. By the end of their residency, they have a great pediatric foundation, which inspires some of them to continue on to do a formal pediatric fellowship. 

When you choose Northwell, you’re choosing a leading level of precision and care. Learn more about our residency offering below, which rotates through Cohen Children’s Medical Center and ensures our future doctors are experts in treating adults and children.

We offer a top-notch residency program in neurosurgery designed to give participants well-rounded, hands-on experience in pediatric care.
