Recently surpassing leukemia, childhood brain tumors cause the most cancer-related deaths among children and young adults ages 0-19. The University of Minnesota is uniquely positioned to train the next generation of pediatricians dedicated to improving the care and outcomes of these children, their families and the population at large affected by neuro-oncology disorders.
Through taking advantage of our large clinical program with known excellence in clinical care, our compendium of experts with innovative pediatric brain tumor research, and our dedicated philanthropic partners, our program will be one of very few highly specialized programs in the country. Although this specialty is not accredited, it is recognized as an advanced specialty and specialized training is required. With our focus on training academic clinicians, we are creating a pipeline for future Pediatric Neuro-Oncologists to continue this vital clinical care and investigative work.
The Pediatric Neuro-Oncology Fellowship Program is a one-year program designed specifically for graduates of pediatric hematology-oncology fellowships or related fields. The aim of the Pediatric Neuro-Oncology Fellowship is to provide comprehensive advanced training in pediatric brain tumors and other tumors of the nervous system. This fellowship includes rotations in neurology, neuro-psychology, neuro-surgery, radiation oncology, endocrinology, cancer epidemiology and survivorship.
