The MGH/DFCI/BWH Neuro-Oncology Fellowship program represents a jointly recruited cohort of trainees in Neuro- Oncology at the Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH), Dana-Farber Cancer Institute (DFCI), and the Brigham and Women's Hospital (BWH). The Neuro-Oncology programs at these three institutions joined in 2003 to establish a combined training program. The MGH-DFCI-BWH fellowship training program in neuro-oncology prepares academically oriented physicians to become leaders in clinical and laboratory investigation and clinical teaching. Four trainees are accepted each year through the SF Match for one clinical year plus 1-2 optional research years. The training is comprehensive with high patient volumes in primary brain tumors (including gliomas), central nervous system (CNS) lymphoma, CNS metastases, and neurologic complications of cancer and cancer therapy.
