Resident Traveling Fellowship in Pediatric Neurosurgery

The Joint Pediatric Neurosurgery Section of the American Association of Neurological Surgeons and Congress of Neurological Surgeons has established 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 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.

Up to four fellowships per year 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 CV.

The strict deadline for application submission is November 1, 2020. The completed application should be emailed to Andrew Jea at ajea@iuhealth.org.
