Neurosurgery Fellowship Opportunity

Dr Winder is pleased to offer a Neurosurgical Fellowship at the prestigious St Vincent’s Hospital, Sydney. The Fellowship aims to cover a broad spectrum of neurosurgical conditions (excluding paediatrics), with a focus on minimally invasive spinal and cranial techniques. Research is a focus of the Fellowship and successful applicants will be involved with the Neurosurgical Department in both the Public and Private sectors. Funding is potentially available.

All enquiries should be directed to
