Pediatric Neurosurgery Fellowship Program

Pediatric Neurosurgery Associates at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta and Emory University School of Medicine Department of Neurosurgery offer a one-year Pediatric Neurosurgery Fellowship at one of the leading pediatric neurosurgery centers in the Southeast.

Why Choose Children’s?

Children’s is one of the top pediatric hospitals in the country, as ranked by Parents magazine and U.S. News & World Report. The fellowship provides specialized training through the Children’s Neurosciences Program, including:

Fellows are exposed to a large volume of operative cases, including:

  • Congenital malformations
  • Vascular malformations
  • Craniofacial malformations
  • Head injuries
  • Brain and spinal cord tumors
  • Spasticity

This experience allows for the evaluation of different approaches to patient management. Each neurosurgeon sees 30 to 50 patients during a typical office day. Fellows are fully engaged in the evaluation, diagnosis and treatment of children.

About Our Program

The primary emphasis of this fellowship is obtaining strong clinical skills and conducting clinical research. There are additional laboratory and other research opportunities through Emory University School of Medicine.

Fellows treat patients using the latest diagnostic technology, including intra-operative magnetic resonance imaging (iMRI) system, dense array electroencephalogram (EEG) and gamma knife technology.

As instructors with the Emory University School of Medicine Department of Neurosurgery, fellows serve in a supervisory and educational role for residents and medical students rotating through the aforementioned clinics and programs.
