Description of the Program
Please contact James B. Yu for more information
At Yale-New Haven Hospital, the cranial SRS program has been operational since the 1990’s. We are a large multidisciplinary program, treating over 300 gamma knife and 100 body radiotherapy cases per year. With the Gamma Knife® Perfexion unit and the Novalis TX radiosurgical platform, our practice encompasses a wide range of clinical situations, including complex intracranial, spine, lung, and liver body radiotherapy/radiosurgery.
The Yale-New Haven Hospital has both the staff expertise as well as the breadth of clinical and technological experience available to provide a comprehensive fellowship opportunity. The goal of the fellowship is to provide the trainee with academic training in radiosurgery/body radiotherapy by participation in both the provision of clinical care and research in either clinical or basic science areas.
The radiosurgery/body radiotherapy fellow is expected to train in all areas of SRS and SBRT. There will be significant opportunities for clinical research. The radiosurgery/body radiotherapy fellowship is of 12 months’ duration. To be eligible, at the time of fellowship, the applicant will have completed an ACGME-approved Radiation Oncology residency and be eligible to take the American Board of Radiology examinations.
