Neurosurgery Fellowship

The Johns Hopkins All Children’s pediatric neurosurgery fellowship is a one year, post-residency fellowship certified by the Accreditation Council for Pediatric Neurosurgery Fellowships and recognized by the American Boards of Pediatric Neurosurgery.

The neurosurgery fellowship prepares the fellow for a career in pediatric neurosurgery with an emphasis on excellence in patient care, development of technical skills and clinical translational research. The fellow will join our four board-certified neurosurgeons, neurosurgery resident and nurse practitioners and will work under the support of specialists, including neurologists, neuroradiologists, intensivists, orthopaedists and neonatologists. The fellow will work in both inpatient and outpatient settings and care for neonates, infants and children and adolescents up to 21 years old.

As part of the training, formal fellow evaluations will occur every three to four months throughout the year-long training program, based on clinical and core competencies. Informal feedback will be provided regularly about operative skill and patient management. The fellow also will participate in neurosurgery conferences at Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital, The Johns Hopkins Hospital and Tampa General Hospital (University of South Florida Health-Neurosurgery) and will be expected to conduct clinical research that will be published before the end of the fellowship. In addition to the training, meeting expenses for one national meeting during the fellowship are provided.
