The pediatric neuro-oncology fellowship program is one of a very few highly specialized programs in the country. It is designed to take advantage of a very large clinical program with worldwide renown in clinical care and the research of pediatric brain tumors. The Brain Tumor Institute at Children’s National Medical Center evaluates more than 100 new patients every year, coming from all parts of the United States and around the world. The multidisciplinary team here provides continuing care for hundreds of others. More information about our group can be found from the Brain Tumor Institute Neuro-Oncology Program.
Our fellowship program can be structured to meet the specific interests and experience of each individual applicant. Thus, the program duration is variable, and can be compressed into an intensive year of clinical training or extended to cover up to two or more years after assessment of the trainee’s goals. Trainees will be instructed in the diagnosis and management of pediatric patients with brain tumors. We seek enthusiastic applicants and will help them become excellent clinical neuro-oncologists and to foster their clinical or bench research careers.
