Neuro-oncology Fellowship

Faculty & Staff

The neuro-oncology attendings will be primarily responsible for the education and mentorship of the fellow.  Through experiential and didactic methods, they will educate the fellow on clinical care of children with brain tumors as well as clinical research.

Other faculty involved
The multi-disciplinary nature of pediatric neuro-oncology mandates a familiarity with radiographic and pathologic findings.  It also requires an understanding of radiation therapy as well as management of patient needs, such as palliation or neuro-psychological issues.
  • Ashley Hill, MD, Kari Tryggstad-Codispoti, MD and Peter Burger, MD: The specifics of neuropathology
  • Shana Jacobs, MD: End-of-life issue and palliative care (experiential and didactic)
