Pediatric Neuro-Oncology Fellowship




We offer a one-year fellowship in pediatric neuro-oncology designed to prepare trainees for a range of careers in the care of children with CNS tumors and investigation of these diseases.


Program features:


  • Train in one of the nation’s top sections of pediatric oncology (USNWR #9, 2021) and children’s hospitals (USNWR #6, 2021).
  • Our pediatric neuro-oncology program is the main center for the entire seven-state Rocky Mountain region and has a strong, extensive history of clinical and research accomplishments.
  • We strive to create a flexible program centered on the fellow’s career goals. 
  • Fellows will have one day of clinic per week, with more as desired, and will develop a panel of primary patients.
  • Fellows will have 1-2 week rotations in neuropathology and neuroradiology. Additional rotations in radiation oncology, neuropsychology, ophthalmology, and neurology are also available based on interest.
  • Our goal is that fellows can also continue and/or develop work in basic, translational, and/or clinical research during the fellowship year.
