Neuro-Oncology Fellowship


The Neuro-Oncology Fellowship will be a dedicated year of combined clinical and academic immersion in pediatric neuro-oncology for those trainees who have already completed a Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Fellowship.

The Brain Tumor Program at Seattle Children’s Hospital provides multidisciplinary care for over 700 children with central nervous system (CNS) tumors. This program has a broad national and international referral base for novel experimental therapies for children with CNS tumors. Furthermore, Seattle Children’s Hospital/Ben Towne Center for Childhood Cancer Research is an international leader in early phase biologically driven pharma and immunotherapy trials for children with high-risk CNS tumors. The fellowship will provide a broad-range multidisciplinary experience in the management of children and adolescents with CNS tumors and exposure to current best active therapies as well as early phase and novel trial therapies.

The clinical fellowship position will be available beginning July 1st, but other accommodations may be possible for qualified individuals. The fellowship extends over 12 months, providing exposure to several disciplines. There may be an opportunity to extend the fellowship beyond 12 months for the purpose of research continuation.
