The University of Pittsburgh-UPMC Neuro-Oncology Fellowship is an intense and comprehensive one-to-two year program for candidates who have completed an adult neurology or medical oncology residency who are interested in subspecialized training in the management of primary brain tumors and neurological complications of cancer and cancer-directed therapies. The goal of the University of Pittsburgh Neuro-Oncology Fellowship program is to foster academically oriented physicians to become leaders in translational research and clinical teaching in the field of Neuro-Oncology. One trainee is accepted each year through the SF Match for one clinical year plus one optional research year. A fellowship position starting July 2020 is available outside of the match. Fellows have access to all the resources of the Hillman Cancer Center and UPMC with opportunities for manuscript and protocol development and presentations at national meetings. The first year of the fellowship involves intensive training in clinical Neuro-Oncology in both inpatient and outpatient settings. The second year is devoted to clinical or basic science research with a continued longitudinal outpatient clinic for ongoing clinical training and graduated independence as a practicing Neuro-Oncologist. The second year is optional with full support available. The University of Pittsburgh-UPMC Neuro-Oncology Fellowship program is accredited by the United Counsel for Neurologic Subspecialties (UCNS).
