Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School offer a Fellowship in image-guided neurosurgery providing advanced training in clinical methods and translational research through an NIH training grant. The fellow will participate in neurosurgical care of patients with brain tumor, epilepsy, and functional disorders. BWH has state-of-the-art image-guided OR with high field large bore MRI, US, fluoroscopy, and world’s first intra-operative PET/CT and is the National Center for Image-Guided Therapy.
