Training opportunities in neurosurgery at Boston Children's

Dr. Warf Hydrocephalus procedureBoston Children’s neurosurgeon Benjamin Warf, MD, directs a training fellowship offered by the International Program to Advance the Treatment of Hydrocephalus (iPATH). The purpose of the program is to prepare neurosurgeons to effectively treat hydrocephalus in developing nations, particularly through the use of the endoscopic third ventriculostomy procedure to reduce dependence on shunts. iPATH fellows spend a minimum of three months receiving intensive hands-on training in Mbale, Uganda.

All fellowship applicants must be medical school graduates, licensed to practice in their home countries, who have completed at least one year of a surgical internship. Some experience in treating hydrocephalus patients is preferred, though not required.
