Because they have patient contact, all clinical fellows require licensure by the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario (CPSO), the body which regulates the practice of medicine in Ontario. A key requirement for the licensure of clinical fellows by the CPSO is that the candidate must be recognized as a medical specialist in the jurisdiction where the candidate has been practicing medicine prior to the clinical fellowship.

|Fellowship Program Description:|
The Toronto Western Hospital Skull Base Oncology fellowship provides significant operative exposure to a range of skull base cases and pathologies, including anterior, lateral, and posterior cases, with an equal emphasis on open and endoscopic procedures, as well as open vascular and plastic surgery/reconstructive cases.
In addition, the fellowship offers the opportunity for GammaKnife training and involvement. Given the University of Toronto's international reputation for cutting edge clinical and translational research, this fellowship also encourages and facilitates significant research productivity, offering clinical fellows the opportunity to contribute significantly to the growing body of evidence on a variety of skull base and neuro-oncologic pathologies.
