Pediatric Neuro-Oncology Fellowship

Pediatric Neuro-Oncology Fellowship

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. The fellow will work under the supervision of the pediatric neuro-oncology staff to diagnose, treat, and provide long-term follow-up for children in both the inpatient and outpatient services. The fellow will also gain experience in phase I and II clinical trials in addition to exposure to basic and translational science research projects conducted by expert faculty within the Masonic Cancer Center’s Brain Tumor Program.

The breadth and depth of faculty and researchers at the University of Minnesota connects fellows with mentors across a variety of interests, enabling trainees to develop projects that truly interest them and can spark an academic career improving the lives and outcomes of pediatric brain tumor patients. Ideal candidates will evidence commitment to a rewarding career in academic medicine. A successful graduate is expected to provide the best in patient care, to conduct innovative research leading to new discoveries impacting the care and survival of patients, and to be teachers responsible in turn for training the next generation of physicians and medical professionals in the field.
