Carolinas HealthCare System’s Neurosciences Institute Approved for Residency Program

Want to learn more about the residency program, including how to apply for a position?

The neurological surgery residency training program at Carolinas HealthCare System’s Carolinas Medical Center received approval from the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) and attained status of initial accreditation as of January 29, 2014.

The work of ACGME to review specific programs and make accreditation decisions is carried out by 27 specialty-specific residency review committees, each of which has strict standards for approving the development of new training programs.

Since receiving their initial accreditation, physicians within the department of neurosurgery, led by Anthony L. Asher, MD, FACS, co-medical director of the Carolinas HealthCare System Neurosciences Institute, and Dr. Scott Wait, director of pediatric neurosurgery at Carolinas Medical Center, have initiated the process of distributing information about the new program to medical schools around the country. The first resident may start as early as July 1, 2014.

Dr. Asher, who also serves as the residency program director, said the neurosurgery training program recruits residents who aspire to national leadership roles in clinical innovation, medical education and neuroscience research.

“This is a very exciting opportunity for us – achieving accreditation for this residency program has long been a goal of ours,” said Dr. Asher. “We believe the neurosurgery faculty and facilities at Carolinas Medical Center will allow us to create one of the premier training programs in the country.”
