Neuro-Oncology Fellowship (Minnesota)
The Neuro-Oncology Fellowship at Mayo Clinic is a two-year fellowship aligned with the Neuro-Oncology Program of the Mayo Clinic Cancer Center and the Mayo Clinic Center for Translational Sciences Activities (CTSA).
The first year of the fellowship provides clinical experience; the second year is oriented towards clinical or laboratory-based training.
Mayo Clinic provides opportunities for coursework in the design of clinical research studies, statistics, clinical epidemiology, clinical trials design and conduct. You also have the opportunity to participate in clinical research studies of new drug therapies; and are encouraged to develop your own independent research projects. As the fellowship is aligned with the Mayo CTSA, you can enroll in either the certificate or masters program.
To ensure that you acquire adequate knowledge and develop your technical skills, your performance will be monitored carefully during the course of your program training. You will be evaluated formally by your supervising faculty member after each clinical rotation and will meet with the program director to review these evaluations. In addition, you will regularly evaluate the faculty to ensure that your educational needs are being met.
The Neuro-Oncology Fellowship at Mayo Clinic was established in 2007. It is anticipated that at least one fellow will participate in the program every year.
