Resident Traveling Fellowship in Pediatric Neurosurgery


The Joint Pediatric Neurosurgery Section of the American Association of Neurological Surgeons and Congress of Neurological Surgeons offers a traveling fellowship for residents in accredited North American neurosurgical training programs. The fellowship is intended to cover the traveling and living expenses for one month for a resident who wishes to obtain additional experience in pediatric neurosurgery during residency.

The one-month fellowship can be spent at any pediatric neurosurgery program within North America to pursue an activity which broadens the resident’s exposure to pediatric neurosurgery, including observation at a clinical or research center, participation in a research project, or any other relevant activity. Fellowships are awarded on the basis of a competitive evaluation by a committee of the Joint Pediatric Section. The maximum fellowship stipend is $2500.

The application must include:

1) A statement defining the purpose of the proposed fellowship;
2) Written permission from the applicant’s residency program director to pursue the one-month fellowship if it is awarded;
3) A letter of acceptance from the pediatric neurosurgical program where the applicant will seek the fellowship;
4) The applicant’s current curriculum vitae.

 

The deadline for application submission is November 1st, 2019.
