Functional Neurosurgery Fellowship

The Johns Hopkins Functional Neurosurgery fellowship is a one-year training program approved by the Committee on Accreditation of Subspecialty Training (CAST) of the Society of Neurological Surgeons. It is a clinical- and research-based fellowship focused on advancing the trainees' functional neurosurgical skills through the clinical and technical milestones as outlined by the American Board of Neurological Surgery.

Under the directorship of Dr. William S. Anderson, Associate Professor of Neurosurgery, the fellow will participate in all functional neurosurgery cases at Johns Hopkins, including procedures to treat movement disorders, epilepsy, spasticity and chronic pain as well as cases associated with active research protocols. In addition to Dr. Anderson’s supervision, the fellow will be overseen by Dr. Shenandoah Robinson, Professor of Pediatric Neurosurgery and Dr. Michael Lim, who will serve as faculty for radiosurgery applications. 

Fellows will be required to participate in research related to functional neurosurgery in the Functional Neurosurgery Laboratory or an affiliated Johns Hopkins laboratory in the Departments of Neuroscience or Biomedical Engineering. Fellows will be required to complete at least one manuscript for publication during the fellowship period on either a clinical or research topic, participate in and present at national neurosurgical meetings and attend weekly and bimonthly multi-disciplinary conferences at Johns Hopkins. In addition to the operative and research responsibilities, fellows will attend the weekly clinics to participate in examination and workup of preoperative patients, and provide postoperative care.

Per the Johns Hopkins Neurosurgery Department guidelines, fellows who have completed accredited neurosurgery residency programs must be supervised during operative procedures and for clinical care.

We welcome senior level residents and recent ACGME neurosurgical residency graduates to apply.

To apply please send your CV and personal statement to Dr. Shenandoah Robinson or to Dr. Anderson.
