The neurosurgery fellowship prepares the fellow for a career in pediatric neurosurgery with an emphasis on excellence in patient care, development of technical skills and clinical translational research. The fellow will join our four board-certified neurosurgeons, neurosurgery resident and nurse practitioners and will work under the support of specialists, including neurologists, neuroradiologists, intensivists, orthopaedists and neonatologists. The fellow will work in both inpatient and outpatient settings and care for neonates, infants and children and adolescents up to 21 years old. 

Pediatric Neuro-Oncology Fellowship

This fellowship program overlaps Johns Hopkins All Children’s Cancer and Blood Disorders Institute and the Institute of Brain Protection Sciences. These two institutes work closely together and share a physical space. The neuro-oncology care team includes physician leaders from neuropathology, neurosurgery and neuroradiology, all promoting collaboration of patient care, research and program development. 

Doctoral Internship in Professional Psychology

The Doctoral Internship in Professional Psychology is a full-time, one year pre-doctoral internship that provides 2,000 clinical training hours. The intern will develop broad and general professional competencies with an emphasis in pediatric/child populations. 

Psychology Postdoctoral Fellowship Program

Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital offers two one-year postdoctoral fellowships in psychology:
