The Stereotactic and Functional Neurosurgery Clinical Instructorship at Stanford Neurosurgery is a one-year appointment, July 1 though June 30. 

The Clinical Instructorship is intended to supplement the core residency training in neurosurgery providing advanced knowledge and skills in stereotactic and functional neurosurgery, including training in the surgical treatment of movement disorders, epilepsy, chronic pain, and psychiatric disorders.
