Welcoming New Neurosurgeon: Rahul Singh, M.D.

Providence Brain & Spine Institute

Where did you complete your training?

I went to medical school at Rutgers New Jersey Medical School. After graduation, I completed a neurological surgery residency at West Virginia University, followed by a fellowship in complex spine at Stanford University.

Why do you like living in Portland?

I appreciate being able to live in a city while having access to the beach and the mountains.

How did you become interested in Neurosurgery?

Prior to medical school, I read a book called "When the Air Hits Your Brain," in which the author described his neurosurgical training experience. This initially piqued my interest in neurosurgery. I was lucky enough to find  great mentors in neurosurgery during medical school who allowed me to shadow them as a first and second year medical student. These experiences really reinforced my interest.

What do you like to do outside of work?

I like to run, spend time with my dog, read fiction and watch the NBA.

What life experience has taught or changed you the most?

During my time in medical school and fellowship, I was lucky enough to find some amazing mentors who were humble, likable and technically excellent. I learned how vital it is for a physician to carry him- or herself with humility to foster a productive team dynamic.
