Brain Surgeon Job Description

Everyone has heard the cliché remark “It doesn’t take a brain surgeon…” But what does a brain surgeon actually do? Virtually all individual brain surgeon job descriptions include these primary duties: performing both routine and emergency brain surgery operations, background medical checks on patients, keeping and updating patient records, and follow-up examinations. To be an effective brain surgeon, you must have an extremely steady hand, a high degree of hand eye coordination, and extensive training in the delicate field of brain surgery and general medicine. The educational requirements to become a brain surgeon include a master’s degree from a medical university, and a lengthy training internship or apprenticeship lasting between 4 and 10 years. A brain surgeon must also be certified by the proper medical authorities before being permitted to perform surgery.
