The U-M Medical School Department of Neurology, Neurosurgery, and Radiation Oncology and the Neuropathology Division have added faculty to the neuro-oncology program over the last several years. Centered in the U-M Medical School Department of Neurology, the neuro-oncology program offers an excellent training opportunity for highly motivated, board certified/eligible neurology residents or internal medicine candidates with oncology fellowship training interested in pursuing a career as an academic or clinical neuro-oncologist. Our training offers certification in neuro-oncology through the United Council for Neurologic Subspecialties (UCNS) after one or two years of training.
The neuro-oncology training at the U-M Medical School provides trainees with training in the diagnosis and management of primary and metastatic brain tumors, as well as in diagnosing and management of neurologic complications of cancer and its treatment. In the neuro-oncology clinic, located in the University of Michigan Rogel Cancer Center, trainees obtain extensive experience managing patients with glioblastoma, anaplastic gliomas, low grade gliomas, meningiomas, primary CNS lymphoma, medulloblastoma, ependymoma, parenchymal and leptomeningeal metastasis from systemic cancers, as well as less common tumors that affect the nervous system. In a consultative role, trainees obtain extensive experience in the management of neuro-oncology patients admitted to the inpatient neurology service for chemotherapy and neurologic complications of treatment. Neuro-oncologic consultations on other services will be seen by trainees on a selective basis, as well.
We have a long tradition of providing world-class training in clinical neurology. Your experience at the University of Michigan Department of Neurology will afford you many opportunities and prepare you to be an educator and a leader in our health care community.
