Pediatric Neurosurgery Associates at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta and in the Emory University School of Medicine Department of Neurosurgery offer a one-year Pediatric Neurosurgery Fellowship Program 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 are additional laboratory and other research opportunities through Emory University.
Fellows treat patients using the latest diagnostic technology, including intra-operative MRI (iMRI), dense array electroencephalogram (EEG) and gamma knife technology.
As instructors with the Emory University School of Medicine Department of Neurosurgery, fellows serve in a supervisory and educational role for residents and medical students rotating through the aforementioned clinics and programs.
Children’s is one of the top pediatric hospitals in the country, as ranked by Parents magazine and U.S. News & World Report. The fellowship provides specialized training through the Children’s Neurosciences Program, including:
Fellows are exposed to a large volume of operative cases, including:
- Congenital malformations
- Vascular malformations
- Craniofacial malformations
- Head injuries
