This one-year fellowship program is designed to provide training in the latest advancements in skull base surgery. Although the majority of surgical approaches are endoscopic (90%), the fellowship will also provide exposure to traditional anterior and lateral approaches to the cranial base.
Surgical experience will be augmented by anatomical dissections of cadaveric specimens in the laboratory and participation in ongoing dissection courses and local meetings. Time will be allotted for research that results in presentation at national meetings and publications.
Goals and objectives of the fellowship program:
U.S. applicants must be either:
International applicants must be eligible to obtain an unrestricted medical license in the state of Pennsylvania and appointment to the active medical staff at UPMC Presbyterian Hospital, both of which requires completion of three years of postgraduate training either in an ACGME approved graduate medical training program (a list of accredited programs can be found here) or a graduate medical education program accredited by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.
All applicants must be eligible for licensure to practice medicine in the State of Pennsylvania.
