Foreign-trained applicants must hold a valid ECFMG certificate and must have had at least 36 months of accredited postgraduate training in the U.S.

    Program Description

    This 1-year neurosurgery fellowship is divided into six 2-month blocks spent on clinical stereotactic and functional service, including epilepsy, neurodegenerative disorders, pain, and stereotactic radiosurgery, combined with research.  The fellowship is accredited by the Society of Neurological Surgeons and accepts one fellow per academic year. Candidates are encouraged to apply 1-2 years before the anticipated start of fellowship training.

    Program Goals

    Graduates of the stereotactic & functional neurosurgery fellowship will develop advanced knowledge and technical skills in the management of patients with complex epilepsy, movement disorders, and pain and be well prepared for careers in academic neurosurgery and subspecialty practice.

    Clinical Duties

    Fellows become an integral part of the Department of Neurosurgery and actively participate in the training and education of residents and medical students. Fellows are expected to share call with the attending physicians and to be on call for complicated cases or postoperative complications. Fellows manage the pre- and postoperative care of patients in surgical and outpatient clinic settings.
