The Division of Neuro-Oncology treats patients with primary brain and spinal tumors, metastases to the central nervous system, and neurologic complications that arise from treatments.

Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center is accredited by the United Council of Neurologic Specialties to offer a two-year fellowship in neuro-oncology.

Trainees in neurology residency programs are invited to apply one year before the starting date, which is typically July 1. During the first year, fellows undergo intensive training in managing patients with active neuro-oncologic disorders and working closely with an attending neuro-oncologist or other specialists.

Rotations are interspersed within the fellowship period:

  • Neurosurgery
  • Radiation oncology
  • Neuropathology
  • Neuroradiology
  • Medical oncology
  • Pediatric neuro-oncology
  • Palliative care

The second year is devoted to research, in either the clinical or basic science domains, while the fellow follows his or her patients in the outpatient clinics or inpatient wards while providing neuro-oncology coverage for the medical center.
