Professionally, I am actively involved in teaching almost every single day.  I have participated in the training of twenty residents in my operating room over the past twelve years.  Initially, they were rotating residents, and for the past five years we have had our own residency program.  I serve as core faculty for our residency program, and as the Associate Program Director.  I oversee our Didactic Curriculum which I have designed and developed over the past several years, in collaboration with my colleagues in neurosurgery as well as in other departments across our Medical School and Health System.  I participate in every one of their lectures and conferences, journal clubs, tumor board conference, as well as the quality and complication avoidance conference.  I personally, give them more lectures than any other neurosurgery faculty member.  Most recently I began a Joint Spine Conference that I have put together in collaboration with my colleagues in the Orthopedic Surgery Department.  This conferences allow us to hear and think about different perspectives for the treatment of different pathologies.
