The International Pediatric Neurosurgery Fellowship is a stipend, 12-month program intended to provide a focused, dedicated pediatric neurosurgical experience, both clinical and academic. The expectation is that the graduating fellow will pursue a career as a neurosurgeon dedicated to the care of children in their country of origin.


There is no accreditation for International Pediatric Neurosurgical Fellowship.


The international fellowship will commence in the fall, off cycle from the core fellowship. However, the international fellow will follow the same curriculum as the chief fellow. Together, they will ensure all surgical cases are covered and assist with management duties. It is expected that the international fellow will complete a research or quality improvement project and submit such work to a national neurosurgery conference.
