In this chapter, Dr. Szuflita, Dr. Curry, and Dr. Bell discuss neurosurgery in the military. There are multiple ways to become a military neurosurgeon, and service obligations depend on the route one takes to join the military. There is a single active duty military neurosurgery residency program, and it is located at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, MD. The practice of military neurosurgery is largely similar to civilian neurosurgery. While subspecialty training is available, all military neurosurgeons are expected to be capable generalists as well.
