Penn Neurosurgery

Langfitt Neurosurgical Society
University of Pennsylvania - School of Medicine

 


The Langfitt Neurosurgical Society was named after the late Thomas W. Langfitt, the influential chief of neurosurgery at the University of Pennsylvania from 1968 until his retirement in 1987. Dr. Langfitt was dedicated to attracting the top minds in neurosurgery; many respected American neurosurgeons trained under him. You can learn more about Dr. Langfitt, pictured left, by reading his Journal of Neurosurgery and New York Times obituaries.

Our society is dedicated to keeping his love of neurosurgery alive by giving interested medical students a chance to learn about the field. Our goal is to connect students with appropriate mentors, research opportunities, clinical experiences, and educational materials to foster their interest in neurosurgery.
