MGH-DFCI-BWH Neuro-Oncology Fellowship 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. The program is a combined effort between Massachusetts General Hospital and Dana-Farber/Brigham and Women’s Cancer Center and is the only neuro-oncology program in the nation supported by a K12 training grant from the National Cancer Institute (NCI). Two to three trainees are accepted each year for one clinical year plus 1-2 optional research years (subject to interest). The program is accredited by the United Counsel for Neurologic Subspecialties (UCNS) and has accumulated more than 50 graduates between 1985 and 2016, many of which are now faculty members of premier neuro-oncology programs across the United States.

Dana-Farber/Harvard Cancer Center (DF/HCC) unites the cancer research efforts of the Harvard affiliated community including our program and is the largest NCI-designed Comprehensive Cancer Center in the nation. The DF/HCC Neuro-Oncology Program is also only one of four recipients of an NCI-sponsored Specialized Program of Research Excellence (SPORE) grant for brain cancer research.
