Education & Outreach

Neuro-oncology is a rapidly growing field. The neuro-oncology fellowship program at NewYork-Presbyterian is designed to develop the next generation of physician-scientists as the field advances. Guided by the clinical and research interests of our trainees, the program exposes trainees to a high-volume of clinical cases as well as clinical and translational research programs available across two Ivy League campuses.

The program is divided across two campuses — NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia University Irving Medical Center and NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center — giving trainees the opportunity to work closely with world-renowned physicians. Trainees work with colleagues in neurosurgery, radiation oncology, neuropathology, palliative care, pediatric oncology, and medical oncology.
