As defined by the United College of Neurologic Subspecialties, neuro-oncology is “a subspecialty that involves the neurological, medical, surgical, and oncologic management of patients with primary or metastatic central and peripheral nervous system neoplasms and any other disorders or complications affecting the nervous system that result directly or indirectly from nervous system or systemic neoplasms or from related treatment.”
Providing the depth and breadth of educational, clinical, and research experiences to the trainees to attain these goals is the challenge of neuro-oncology training programs. The following description divides the training program into three integrated and interrelated components.
- Clinical Program
- Research Program
- Didactic Program
