The Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital Pediatric Neuro-Oncology Fellowship program in St. Petersburg, Florida is accepting applications for the training start date of July 2020.
Neuro-Oncology is a developing pediatric subspecialty that is in constant evolution as innovative diagnostic strategies, therapeutic, and prognostic factors are being identified. There continues to be a considerable need for physicians who have an interest in this scope of clinical practice as the field continues to expand. The current landscape of the neuro-oncology program at Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital has placed it in a strong position to provide a unique and innovative training experience to develop the next generation of leaders in pediatric neuro-oncology, which is directly aligned with the tripartite mission of our organization. This fellowship program overlaps two of the four institutes at Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital – the Cancer and Blood Disorders Institute and the Institute of Brain Protection Sciences. These two institutes work closely together sharing physical space for the physician leaders, which promotes collaboration of patient care, research, and program development. The Program Director is a double board certified pediatrician and pediatric hematologist/oncologist and completed a pediatric neuro-oncology fellowship. The Associate Program Director is board certified in child neurology and specializes in neuro-oncology. The neuro-oncology care team also includes physician leaders from Neuropathology, Neurosurgery, and the Division of Neuroradiology. Additionally, the high volume of new neuro-oncology patients provides excellent opportunity for teaching and research.
Neuro-oncology fellowship applicants must have completed an ACGME-accredited pediatric hematology/oncology fellowship or a child neurology residency. The 1-year neuro-oncology fellowship is primarily a clinical fellowship whereas the fellow is required to participate daily in direct patient care. Additional expectations include participation with teaching, lectures, didactics, and the completion of one research or quality improvement project.
In order to be considered for an interview, please submit the following by October 15th, 2019:
3 letters of recommendation, one of which must be from the applicant’s most current program director*
Current and updated CV
Personal Statement, limited to one (1) page
