The Weill Cornell Brain and Spine Center has announced a new medical student fellowship, starting in July 2015. The fellowship, made possible by a generous grant from the Rudin Foundation, will allow  one medical student per year to join the Children's Brain Tumor Project as a way to explore a research career in pediatric neuro-oncology. Dr. Mark M. Souweidane, Professor and Vice Chairman of the Weill Cornell Department of Neurosurgery and co-director of the Children's Brain Tumor Project, will be the fellowship director for this position.

Each fellow will take a year off between either the second and third or third and fourth year of medical school to pursue this research. He or she will conduct a research project focused on central nervous system (CNS) tumors in children. Applications will be accepted from students at any accredited medical school in the North America.
