Dr. Uribe completed his neurosurgical residency in 2014 in his native Colombia, then earned a Master of Health Science at the Bloomberg School of Public Health at Johns Hopkins University in 2015. He completed a pediatric neurosurgery fellowship at Johns Hopkins Hospital in 2016 before coming to Weill Cornell Medicine for additional fellowship training (pediatric neurosurgery and minimally invasive endoscopic surgery in 2016-17,  pediatric neurosurgery and epilepsy surgery in 2017-18, and endoscopic skull base and pituitary surgery in 2018). He was accepted into the neurosurgical residency program here to fulfill his final requirements for becoming a practicing neurosurgeon in the United States, and expects to complete the program in 2023.
