Focus on Leadership, Citizenship Sets Department of Neurosurgery Apart

Robert Harbaugh, M.D., professor and chair of Penn State Department of Neurosurgery and director of Penn State Hershey Neuroscience Institute, encourages all members of his department to take an active role in the field. “One thing we encourage in our residency training, aside from the usual missions of education, patient care, and research, is involvement in organized neurosurgery.” As they train new residents, Penn State Hershey Neurosurgery faculty members also encourage younger physicians to pass on their knowledge and adopt a citizenship role in the field.

Harbaugh himself holds multiple leadership positions, including president of the Society of Neurological Surgeons. He previously served as immediate past president of the American Association of Neurological Surgeons and director and member of the Advisory Council of the American Board of Neurological Surgery. Harbaugh has traveled extensively to lecture on various topics, including his clinical specialty of cerebrovascular neurosurgery and his research work on computer modeling of intracranial aneurysms.
