The clinical fellowship in pediatric neurosurgery at Indiana University School of Medicine is an ACPNF-accredited one-year program. Fellows are trained by nationally respected pediatric neurosurgeons who perform between 875 and 1,000 cases annually. As a result, fellows are exposed to and access a wide range of pediatric neurosurgical cases in preparation for independent practice or an academic career.
After a period of training and supervision, participating fellows are granted independent consulting, admitting and operating privileges. Fellows may choose to focus on neurovascular, neuro-oncology, spine or epilepsy/functional subspecialties.
