Pediatric Neuro-Oncology Fellowship

The Section of Pediatric Neuro-Oncology at NYU Langone offers a one-year clinical fellowship that provides comprehensive training in the diagnosis and management of primary central nervous system tumors in children and young adults. In an optional second or third year, you may pursue neuro-oncology clinical or laboratory research training, although you must first receive approval from the program director and secure additional funding. This program is not accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).

Candidates with an academic inclination are encouraged to apply. Applicants should have completed an ACGME-accredited program in pediatric hematology–oncology or pediatric neurology. International applicants with equivalent qualifications are eligible to apply if they have completed all three steps of the U.S. Medical Licensing Examination® (USMLE®) and a Clinical Skills Assessment (CSA), as well as have a valid Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates® (ECFMG®) certificate.

To apply, submit a letter of interest to Theodore P. Nicolaides, MD, fellowship director, at theodore.nicolaides@nyulangone.org. Selected candidates are invited for a personal interview and must then supply three letters of recommendation, including one from their current program director or department chair. Candidates must obtain a valid New York State medical license or a limited permit to practice medicine in the state of New York before the start date.

Fellows interested in pursuing a career in translational research are strongly encouraged to apply to the MS in Clinical Investigation program, a two-year training program for clinician–scientists that offers a concentration in translational research.

For more information, contact Dr. Nicolaides at 212-263-9959 or theodore.nicolaides@nyulangone.org or Sharon L. Gardner, MD, associate fellowship director, at sharon.gardner@nyulangone.org.
