Pediatric Neurosurgery Associates at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta and Emory University School of Medicine Department of Neurosurgery offers a one-year fellowship in pediatric neurosurgery at one of the leading pediatric neurosurgery centers in the Southeast.
The primary emphasis of this fellowship is obtaining strong clinical skills and conducting clinical research. There will be additional laboratory and other research opportunities through Emory University School of Medicine, with a strong record of basic and translational neurosciences research.
The fellow will be exposed to a large volume of operative cases, including congenital malformations, vascular malformations, craniofacial malformations, head injuries, brain and spinal cord tumors and spasticity. To treat these patients, the fellow will utilize the latest diagnostic technology, including intra-operative magnetic resonance imaging (iMRI) system, dense array electroencephalogram (EEG) and gamma knife technology to improve surgery outcomes.
With the cooperation of Children’s, the fellow also will have access to one of the top three pediatric hospitals in the country, as ranked by Parents magazine and U.S.News & World Report. The fellowship will provide specialized training through the Children’s Neurosciences Program, including:
This experience will allow for the evaluation of different approaches to patient management. Each neurosurgeon sees 30 to 50 patients during a typical office day. The fellow will be fully engaged in the evaluation, diagnosis and treatment of these children.
As an instructor with the Emory University School of Medicine Department of Neurosurgery, the fellow will serve in a supervisory and educational role for residents and medical students rotating through the aforementioned clinics and programs.
