Cerebrovascular & Skull Base Fellowship Program Description
This 1-year neurosurgery fellowship is divided into two 6-month blocks with one block spent primarily on the clinical service and one block spent primarily focused on research projects in the neurosurgical research laboratory. The fellowship is accredited by the Society of Neurological Surgeons and accepts two fellows per academic year. Candidates are encouraged to apply 2-3 years before the anticipated start of fellowship training.
Graduates of the cerebrovascular and skull base fellowship will develop advanced knowledge and technical skills in the management of patients with complex cerebrovascular or skull base disorders and be well prepared for careers in academic neurosurgery and subspecialty practice.
Cerebrovascular & Skull Base Clinical Duties
