We offer an endoscopic skull base surgery research fellowship in order to meet the need that many neurosurgeons-in-training have for in-depth exposure to advanced, minimally invasive techniques. Fellows observe cases in the operating room and are involved in research projects including clinical reports and cadaveric dissection in the Weill Cornell Medicine Surgical Innovations Laboratory for Skull Base Microneurosurgery.
We advance the field, improve safety, and further define surgical indications of endoscopic skull base neurosurgery through our fellowship. Investigative efforts are distributed through peer-reviewed publications for the benefit of neurosurgeons worldwide. Participants are expected to devote a minimum of three months to the program and will receive a stipend based on their level of training.
The fellowship centers around minimally invasive approaches to skull base surgery, including endonasal, supraorbital and transorbital, under the supervision of Dr. Theodore Schwartz, David and Ursel Barnes Professor of Minimally Invasive Neurosurgery, Director of Anterior Skull Base and Pituitary Surgery, Co-Director of Surgical Neuro-Oncology, and Director of Epilepsy Surgery. For more information about the fellowship, contact Dr. Schwartz: (212) 746-5620.
