In addition to clinical training under the supervision of neuro-oncology faculty members, trainees also attend a wide variety of weekly teaching conferences:
- fellow-oriented lecture series in neuro-oncology, starting with the basics of neuro-oncology and expanding to include emerging data from journals, clinical trial methodology, and research talks
- fellow-oriented lecture series in hematology/oncology for hematology/oncology and neuro-oncology trainees
- neuro-oncology grand rounds
- hematology/medical oncology grand rounds
- weekly brain tumor boards
Fellows also have the opportunity to receive formal training in clinical research methodology through the summer Program in Clinical Effectiveness (PCE) at the Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH). For those who apply directly to HSPH, it is possible to obtain a master of science or a master of public health degree in three summers.
