Brain Tumor Center: Our Former Neurosurgery & Neuro-Oncology Fellows

Below is a list of our former fellows for neurosurgery and neurology, including information on where they are now.

Neurosurgery Fellows, 1998 to 2009

Memorial Sloan Kettering's Neurosurgical Oncology Fellowship is sought by graduates of American and Canadian training programs who desire extra concentration in the surgery of brain tumors. Some seek a second year of laboratory training. All leave with enhanced confidence in their skills and the imprimatur of a fellowship widely admired for its excellence. Graduate fellows go on to academic or private surgical practices with a brain tumor emphasis.
